Daugherty Dons NE-10 Freshman of the Week

NORTH ANDOVER, MA – First-year Merrimack field hockey player, April Daugherty (Lincoln, RI) earned Northeast-10 Conference Freshman of the Week honors on Monday for her part in a 6-0 win over American International College.

Daugherty tallied her first and second collegiate goals versus American International, while adding two helpers, including the eventual game-winner to senior captain Jaclyn Germano (Westwood, MA).

With the win, the Warriors recorded their first of the year and most goals scored since October 18, 2004 when Head Coach Anne Rounce poured in a pair of goals against Worcester Polytechnic Institute as a sophomore Warrior.

Merrimack takes on Franklin Pierce University today at 4:00pm to open their Northeast-10 Conference schedule.
