Mikel Wins MAAC Offensive Player of the Week

April 12, 2010

Junior attackman Caitlin Mikel was named MAAC Offensive Player of the Week Monday afternoon following two dominating league games this weekend. Mikel scored 13 goals in a 2-1 week for the Saints, 12 of which came in wins over Manhattan and Iona.

Mikel matched a season-high with seven goals (including the game winner) in a 13-10 win against Manhattan on Friday.

She followed that with a five-goal performance in a 15-6 win against Iona on Sunday. Two different times against Iona, the Gaels scored and Mikel answered for the Saints nine seconds later. Both times on the ensuing faceoff, Mikel caught the draw and sprinted past the entire defense for a one-on-one with the goalie.

She leads the team with 37 goals and 54 points.
