Senior Named MVP of the ODAC Field Hockey Tournament

Senior midfielder S.B. Northen

LEXINGTON, Va. -- Washington and Lee senior midfielder S.B Northen (Richmond, Va./Collegiate) has been named to the Honor Roll team for the week ending Nov. 7.

Northen, who was named MVP of the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Field Hockey Tournament, helped lead the Generals to their first-ever ODAC Championship over the weekend.

Northen and the rest of the W&L defense allowed just three goals throughout the ODAC Tournament, including holding Lynchburg, one of the elite offenses in the ODAC, to just one goal in a 2-1 win over the Hornets in the ODAC Championship game.

Northen has recorded five points on two goals and one assist this season. The Generals (15-5) carry a school-record 11-game winning streak into the NCAA Tournament, where they will play at Montclair State in a first round game on Wednesday at 4:00 pm.
