Amy Ludlum Tabbed Player of the Week After Another Dominating Stretch

Oct. 9, 2007

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Senior Amy Ludlum was named Player of the Week by the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference after a seven-day stretch that included two game-winning finishes and an Institute record for career goals.

Ludlum helped MIT (8-3-0, 3-1-0) keep pace last week in a torrid race for second place in the NEWMAC standings after leading the Engineers in two consecutive shutout victories over league foes. Ludlum scored her third game-winning goal of the season with an improbable goal in the first minute of last Tuesday's match against Clark as the Cardinal and Gray upended the Cougars, 1-0.

On Friday night, Ludlum secured her second game-winning goal of the week after providing the first finish in a 4-0 win at Coast Guard. She also added two assists against the Bears to factor in four of MIT's five goals during the week. Ludlum's finish in the 42nd minute against Coast Guard was even more significant as it set a new Institute record with her 49th career goal, surpassing the mark previously established by Rebecca Hill (1991-94).

Ludlum, who leads the NEWMAC with 15 goals and 37 points, was named the NEWMAC Player of the Year following the 2006 campaign.
