Wells Named LEC Field Hockey Offensive Player of the Week for the Second Time

PAWTUCKET, R.I. – For the second time in the 2018 season, Castleton's Sarah Wells was named the Little East Conference Offensive Player of the Week for the week ending Oct. 28.

The recognition comes after Wells scored the game-winner in double-overtime to defeat Keene State on Saturday as Castleton claimed the LEC regular season title and the number one seed in the conference tournament.

Wells also added an assist and registered a team-high six shots in the clinching contest. 

The senior completed her standout regular season with 16 goals, good for fifth in the conference, with six assists. Wells, a Bellows Falls, Vermont native, was the fifth Castleton field hockey player to ever eclipse the 100-point mark when she scored twice against Worcester State on Oct. 13. She will enter the postseason with 107 career points.

Castleton (13-4, 11-1 LEC) will enter the LEC tournament on Tuesday, as it will host eighth-seeded Eastern Connecticut State at 6 p.m.
