WESTWOOD, Mass.—Babson College senior Colleen Beggan (Medfield, Mass.) was selected as the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) women's soccer Defensive Player of the Week on Tuesday morning.
One of five players to start every game this season, Beggan helped the Beavers earn a 1-1 double-overtime draw at WPI on Tuesday, which was followed by a 5-0 win over Coast Guard in their NEWMAC home opener on Saturday afternoon. The Green and White limited the Bears to just three total shots while recording its most lopsided conference win since an 8-0 triumph over Coast Guard in 2009.
Babson (4-6-2, 1-1-2 NEWMAC) returns to action on Tuesday afternoon when it visits Springfield for a 4:30 p.m. kickoff.
