WEEKLY NOTES:

- Rookie Whitney Hoban leads the team with seven points (T12th in NESCAC) on a pair of goals and three assists (T4th in NESCAC). Hoban assisted on the first Trinity goal of the day versus Emerson. 

- Sophomore Amelia Kroschwitz is tied with Hoban for the team-lead in assists with three (T4th in NESCAC). Kroschwitz tallied two helpers in the Bantams' victory over Emerson and currently has five points on the year after also scoring a goal against the Lions.

- Junior Tricia Pollock leads the team in goals after scoring three times last week. Pollock scored twice on penalty kicks and added another versus Emerson. She is tied for ninth in the NESCAC in goals.

- Sophomore Cami Beath is tied for second on the team with six points after scoring a goal and adding two assists last week. Beath scored her second goal of the fall versus Emerson and also added an assist in that game. She also assisted on a goal from Katie Marlow-Benedick, her second of the year, against Colby on Saturday. Marlow-Benedick has five points so far this season thanks to a pair of goals and one assist. 

- Junior defender Kelly Lucas found the back of the net for the first time in her career last Wednesday, rifling a shot into the top shelf of the net. Lucas has four points on the season and is a key part of a Trinity defense that has already recorded a pair of shutouts.

- Rookie Lilianna Khosrowshahi earned her first career victory versus Emerson in the form of a 5-0 shutout. Khosrowshahi made a pair of saves against the Lions to preserve the clean sheet. Her and sophomore Taylor O'Connor have combined for 43 saves this year which leads the NESCAC as a team.

- Wheaton checks in as the No. 7-ranked team in New England with a 7-1 record.
