PSU Field Hockey freshman earns LEC honor
Carroll named Rookie of the Week for Panthers
PLYMOUTH, N.H. – One of the freshmen on the Plymouth State University field hockey team was recognized by the Little East Conference Tuesday with one of the top weekly honors after her performance for the Panthers last week.
Freshman Lauren Carroll (Rollinsford, N.H./Somersworth) was named LEC Rookie of the Week after PSU’s victory over Westfield State on Saturday. She is the third Panther freshman to earn LEC Rookie of the Week this season, joining Annabelle Frenette (Old Orchard Beach, Maine) and Jackie Morin (Scarborough, Maine).
A 5’6” forward, Carroll (right) recorded her first career hat trick Saturday in PSU’s 4-2 win over Worcester State. The Lancers took 1-0 and 2-1 leads, and each time Carroll scored to tie the game, and then she completed the hat trick with the go-ahead and eventual game-winning goal with 30 minutes to go in the second half.
The Panthers, who went 2-0 last week to improve to 10-5 overall and 8-2 in the LEC, wrap up the regular season with two games this week – Tuesday at home against Saint Joseph’s College and Saturday at Bridgewater State.
