Ambika Krishnamachar Collects NEWMAC Weekly Honors

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Freshman Ambika Krishnamachar (Darien, Conn.) was chosen as the NEWMAC women's soccer Offensive Player of the Week following a pair of key performances that secured home-field advantage for the first round of the upcoming conference tournament.

Last Tuesday, Krishnamachar scored the game-winning goal in the Engineers' 2-1 overtime victory against Wellesley College. She followed this up by assisting in what proved to be the game-winning goal in a 2-0 decision over the U.S. Coast Guard Academy on Saturday.

MIT will close out the regular season with a pair of home games this week. The Engineers will take on Husson University on Tuesday, Oct. 25 and then will host NEWMAC foe Babson College on Saturday, Oct. 29.
