CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – For the first time in her career junior Casey Flynn was voted the New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Women’s Lacrosse Player of the Week. In a 3-0 week for MIT, she tallied 16 goals, six assists, six groundballs, four caused turnovers, and one draw control.

Last Tuesday against Simmons College, Flynn tied the Institute record for points in a game with eight goals and two assists to go along with four groundballs and four caused turnovers. She totaled five goals and two assists versus Colby-Sawyer College before capping the week with three goals and two assists at NEWMAC foe Smith College.

The Engineers continue conference play on Tuesday, April 14, 2009 at Wheaton College. Last year, the Lyons rallied past MIT, 17-16, during the regular season. Two weeks later, the Cardinal and Gray avenged the one-goal loss by topping host Wheaton, 13-12, in the quarterfinals of the NEWMAC Championship Tournament.
