NORTON, Mass. – Wheaton College senior goalkeeper Lindsay Leddy (Warwick, R.I./Wheeler School) has been named Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division III - New England Region Defensive Player of the Week.
Leddy - who was named New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Women's Soccer Defensive Player of the Week for the third time this season on Monday - recorded three shutout victories last week to help the Lyons improve to 15-2-3 and 7-1-1 against NEWMAC opponents. She made five saves in a 1-0 win at Keene State on Tuesday, six saves in a 1-0 win at Salem State on Thursday, and one save in a 9-0 win over Coast Guard on Senior Day this past Saturday. In the process, she extended her shutout streak to 428:57 – a span of more than five matches.
On the season, Leddy is 14-2-2 with a 0.45 goals against average (GAA) and a .902 save percentage. Her 10 shutouts are tied for the fourth-highest single-season total in school history while her 14 wins rank eighth.
Saturday's win over the Bears secured the No. 2 seed in this week's NEWMAC Tournament for the Lyons, who will head to Springfield, Mass. on Saturday for a semifinal match with either No. 3 MIT or No. 6 Wellesley. Earlier this season, the Lyons scored a 2-0 win over MIT at Mirrione Stadium and posted a 2-0 win over the Blue in Wellesley, Mass.
