UMass Boston's Jane Morristte (Pembroke, Mass.) and Norwich University's Amanda Conway (Methuen, Mass.) were named Co-Players of the Week. The duo of Britney Evangelista (North Smithfield, R.I.) and Bridget Fagan (Millis, Mass.) of University of Southern Maine earned Goaltender and Rookie of the week accolades respectively.

Players of the Week
Jane Morrisette – UMass Boston

Amanda Conway – Norwich University
(Junior, Forward– Methuen, Mass.)

player Conway scored twice to account for all of Norwich's offense in a rematch of the 2018 NCAA Division III Women's Ice Hockey National Championship game with No. 2/3-ranked Elmira College. The Cadets fell 4-2 to EC but Conway started off her national goal scoring champion defense in a strong way.

Goaltender of the Week
Britney Evangelista – University of Southern Maine
(Senior, Goaltender – North Smithfield, R.I.)

player In her first start of the 2018-19 season, Evangelista made 43 saves, including 16 in the third period, to help Southern Maine earn a 1-1 overtime tie with Endicott College, a team that picked up points in both national preseason polls.

Honor Roll

Haley Poloskey – Suffolk University
