WALPOLE – Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) freshman Abby O’Sullivan was named NEWMAC field hockey offensive player of the week on Oct. 2.

The Walpole High School graduate was also named the WPI student-athlete of the week.

Earlier this season O’Sullivan netted two goals in a non-conference win over previously unbeaten Lasell. She went on to register four shots on goal during a Sept. 30 matchup against Springfield College. It is the first time WPI has defeated Springfield, 3-2, since 1999.
