WESTWOOD, Mass.—Babson College senior Steven Heintzelman (Middleton, Mass.) and sophomore Mitchell Collins (Burlington, Mass.) were both recognized when the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) released its first weekly awards on Tuesday morning.
Heintzelman collected conference defensive co-player of the week honors after recording four saves in the Beavers' 1-0 victory over Western New England in the season opener on Friday afternoon. He made three stops over the final 45 minutes to post his 10th career shutout in 17 starts.
Collins was tabbed as the NEWMAC Offensive Player of the Week thanks to his sixth-minute tally on Friday against the Golden Bears. The marker was the third of Collins' career and marked the second year in a row that he has scored in the season opener for the Green and White.
Babson (1-0-0) returns to action on Tuesday at 3 p.m. when it begins a four-game road trip at Southern Maine.
