PSU Women’s Lax freshman repeats LEC honor

Bay named Rookie of the Week for second time

            PLYMOUTH, N.H. – One of the top freshmen on the Plymouth State University women’s lacrosse team was honored by the Little East Conference Monday with her selection as the LEC Rookie of the Week.

 
  Mekenna Bay

            Freshman Mekenna Bay (Maracaibo, Venezuela) earns the top LEC Rookie honor for the second time this month after helping lead the Panthers in a pair of games last week.  She is one of four Panthers who have been honored by the LEC this spring.

            A freshman attacker, Bay recorded six goals and two assists in the two games last week, helping PSU to a 1-1 record.  She scored one goal in Tuesday’s 10-4 LEC loss to Keene State, and she tallied a career-high seven points with five goals and two assists in Thursday’s 16-6 win over Framingham State. Bay also picked up two ground balls and one draw control in the two games.

            Bay ranks fourth on the team in scoring with 22 points and third with 18 goals.  She is also tied for third in the LEC with two game-winning goals.

            PSU heads into the final week of the regular season with a 7-5 overall record and 2-2 LEC mark.  The Panthers will conclude the regular season slate with two LEC home games this week at Arold Field, hosting the University of Southern Maine on Wednesday and Western Connecticut State University on Saturday.   The Little East Tournament begins next week.
