Simmons junior Brooke MacKenzie (Mansfield, Mass.) was named the Great Northeast Athletic Conference Soccer Player of the Week, the GNAC announced Monday evening. The honor follows a week in which MacKenzie helped the Sharks to a 2-0 week in the conference. She scored both goals to lift Simmons over Norwich, 2-1. She notched another two goals in Simmons' 5-2 victory over Albertus Magnus a few days later.
"Brooke MacKenzie is the type of athlete that can take over a game in a matter of moments. She has the ability to lift our team above opponents," said Head Coach Erica Mastrogiacomo. "She shows her determination and drive on the field as she relentlessly exploits our rivals. I am proud of Brooke and I am confident that her name will appear on this list again."
