November 4, 2012

Middlebury College field hockey player Madeline Brooke (Clayton, Mo.) has been named the NESCAC player of the week. The senior helped lead the Panthers to their second NESCAC Championship with her stellar play in goal over the weekend. The senior was at her best on Sunday, when she racked up nine saves in her team’s 3-2 triumph over third seeded Bowdoin in the conference finals. She stopped three of five shots in the decisive shootout to seal things for the hosts. Brooks also turned away five shots in Middlebury’s dramatic 3-2 overtime victory over fifth seeded Amherst in the semifinals on Saturday.
