HADLEY, MA —Williams College senior midfielder Rebecca McGovern was selected as the NESCAC Women's Lacrosse Player of the Week for play ending Sunday, April 12.

McGovern had eight points in a pair of come-from-behind overtime wins for the Ephs last week, scoring three goals and adding an assist in each victory. On Saturday, the Ephs trailed Colby 8-6 with 88 seconds left before scoring twice to send it into overtime. In the first overtime period, Colby went up 9-8 but McGovern's second goal of the game tied it. She then won the game in sudden-victory, double overtime with her third goal.

In a 9-8 overtime win over Hamilton, it was McGovern's goal with 3:46 left in the second half that sent the game into overtime. In the win over Colby, she also had a game-high seven draw controls, one ground ball. Against Hamilton, she added three ground balls and four caused turnovers.

McGovern leads the 11-1 Ephs in goals (27), groundballs (26), draw controls (36) and caused turnovers (21).
