            A 5'8" goalie, Lemelin recorded a 2-0 record for the week with a 0.50 goals against average, four saves and one shutout.  She needed to make just two saves in each of her victories, a 4-1 win Wednesday over Southern Maine and a 2-0 whitewash over Fitchburg State on Saturday.

            Lemelin is ranked second in the 12-team LEC and 14th in the NCAA Division III with a 0.93 goals against average.  She also ranks third in the conference with four shutouts.           

            PSU is back on the turf with a pair of road games this week, a non-conference affair Wednesday at Springfield College and an LEC matchup Saturday at Salem State University.
