Tango Named NEWMAC Offensive Player of the Week

WESTWOOD, Mass.—Babson College senior Ashley Tango (Reading, Mass.) was tabbed as the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Offensive Player of the Week on Monday afternoon.

Tango produced four goals and one assist for nine points, and became just the 17th player in Division III history to reach the 50-goal, 50-assist mark in a pair of blowout wins for the Beavers. She recorded her second career hat trick and matched her career high with seven points in Wednesday's 8-0 rout of Wellesley, and followed it up with another tally in Saturday's 6-1 victory at Clark.

Tango has 10 goals and is tied for second in Division III with 12 assists for 32 points in 13 games this fall. With Wednesday's seven-point performance she also ranks third in program history with 51 goals and 50 assists for 152 points.

No. 11 Babson (10-3, 5-0 NEWMAC) travels to the University of New England on Tuesday at 6 p.m. and will return home to take on Smith on Saturday at 12 p.m.
