DuPuy, the reigning ODAC Co-Rookie of the Year, opened her week with a tally in LC's 3-0 home win over Emory & Henry.

DuPuy, who helped LC stay undefeated on the season, now has seven goals and is third on the team with 16 points.

Ashley Stevens, Randolph - (Sr, D - Leicester, MA, 2)
Stevens, who plays both keeper and back for the WildCats, helped lead Randolph to a 2-0 week. The two wins give Randolph seven on the season, marking the most victories for the program since 2004. Stevens posted a shutout in net in a 3-0 victory over Eastern Mennonite on Wednesday, but was employed in the back with starting keeper Hunter Gibson returning against Meredith. Facing a team that was 9-3 coming in, Stevens and her backline partners posted another shutout, denying many scoring chances. Stevens also headed the ball out of the box on a free kick, allowing Randolph to counter attack and score the game-winner in overtime of the 1-0 victory.
