Representing the Keene State College Volleyball team, this week’s athlete of the week is Haley Willumsen.
The freshman setter has quickly stepped into her role as the top assister on the team.
Willumsen led the Owls in assists in all of their matches this week. She had 14 assists and 12 digs in KSC’s 3-1 loss to conference-opponent UMass-Boston.
Willumsen followed up that performance with an impressive 30 assists and seven digs against UMass-Dartmouth.
Then, she put up another 22 assists and six digs in KSC’s match vs. the University of New England.
Willumsen also posted a service ace in all three matches, including two aces against UMass-Dartmouth.
Marisa Lemoine of the KSC Field Hockey team is the first runner-up this week for her goal-scoring abilites.
The forward had a game-high two goals in KSC’s 6-2 victory over Westfield State.
The freshman from Berlin, N.H. came off the Owls’ bench to score KSC’s only goal in their 3-1 loss to Little East Conference rival UMass-Dartmouth.
The second runner-up this week is Kyle Leavitt. The men’s soccer team’s senior midfielder was the hero in the Owls’ 1-0 overtime victory over UMass-Dartmouth.
After a scoreless regulation 90 minutes the LEC opponents faced off in overtime.
However, only 22 seconds into the overtime period Leavitt posted his second goal of the season, giving KSC its 1-0 edge.
His goal would be the difference between the teams and brought KSC a 4-1-1 LEC record on the year.
