Sept. 12, 2006

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Freshman Liz Theurer was named NEWMAC Player of the Week in women's soccer after a sensational effort in the Engineers' 4-0 victory against Simmons College last week. Theurer is the first MIT rookie to earn weekly league honors in the history of the program.

Theurer, who scored the game-winning goal in Tech's season-opening win against Brandeis, scored the first two goals - including another game-winner - in Tech's victory over the Sharks. Theurer added an assist on the third goal of the match before making an early exit from the match. Through three games this season, Theurer leads the Engineers with three goals and seven points.
