Meghan Wright Earns NEWMAC Accolades

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Junior goalkeeper Meghan Wright (Devon, Pa.) was chosen as the NEWMAC women's soccer Defensive Player of the Week following a pair of outstanding performances which helped her break an MIT record that stood for 19 years.

Last Tuesday, Wright collected six saves in a 1-0 win over Lesley University. She followed this up with a six-save outing in a 0-0 tie with Clark University. Wright's third straight shutout resulted in the 21st clean sheet of her career and broke the previous mark for career shutouts established by Meg O'Neil '93 in 1992.
