Meghan Els earned both NAC Defensive Player of the Week and the Corvias ECAC New England Division III Defensive Player of the Week for her efforts in net last week against Western New England.
Els turned in an impressive performance in the losing effort against the Golden Bears. In just her third start of the year, the junior registered 17 saves with a .567 save percentage against a squad that averaged 16.67 goals per game a season ago. Els now ranks second in the North Atlantic Conference (NAC) in saves (46) and third in save percentage (.554) while sitting seventh nationally in saves per game (15.33). On Monday, the junior goalie was honored by the conference as its Defensive Player of the Week.
