Marrison Earns Player Of The Week Honors

March 7, 2011

Middlebury College women’s hockey player Heather Marrison has been named the NESCAC Player of the Week. Marrison tallied two goals and assisted on two others as part of the Panthers’ run to the 2011 NESCAC Women’s Ice Hockey Championship this past weekend, Middlebury’s sixth conference crown. On Saturday in a 4-0 win over Bowdoin, Marrison scored the first Middlebury goal before assisting on the second. She followed on Sunday with another goal and an assist, helping out on the game’s first score before giving the Panthers a 2-1 lead which they would not relinquish in a 4-3 decision against Amherst.

Marrison and the Panthers are preparing to host Manhattanville in an NCAA Quarterfinal game on Saturday at 7:00 p.m.
