NEW LONDON, Conn. -- Coast Guard Academy freshman Brenna Farrington has been named the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Women's Lacrosse Offensive Athlete of the Week for the second time this season.

Farrington led Coast Guard to a 2-0 week including nine goals in the program's first ever NEWMAC win over Smith. Farrington finished the week with 13 goals as she added four in the Bears rivalry win over Merchant Marine, 16-12.

She broke numerous team records during the 21-15 win over Smith, scoring a career high nine goals. That is now the most goals and points in a single game by any player in program history.
