Who to honor this week?

Huskies teams went 6-4-1 this weekend, including a sweep by the field hockey team, which knocked off 17th-ranked Delaware Sunday. The excellence displayed on the field/court/ice this weekend makes picking Student-Athlete of the Week difficult once again. Here are the nominees; find out who wins on Tuesday.

F Chris Donovan, Men's Hockey
The senior assistant captain notched a four-point weekend as the Huskies split a pair of games at Colorado College. He had an assist in Friday night's loss then picked up two assists and the game-winning goal in a 4-3 victory Saturday night.

F Veronica Napoli, Women's Soccer
Last year's All-American and CAA Rookie of the Year was off to a slow start after coming back from an injury, but she turned it on big time this weekend. She scored two goals, including the game-winner in double overtime, Friday night against William & Mary. She then assisted on NU's long goal in a 1-1 tie vs. Old Dominion Sunday. That's a five-point weekend for the sophomore sensation, who is third on the team in goals and points.

GK Lizzie Priest, Field Hockey
Priest was untouched last week, recording shutouts against Towson and 17th-ranked Delaware. She made eight total saves for the Huskies, who have won five in a row and are in the hunt for a CAA Tournament berth. Priest, a redshirt freshman, has a 1.59 GAA in 13 games this season.

F Alyssa Wohlfeiler, Women's Hockey
The junior from Saugus, Calif., had a three-point game in a 4-0 victory over Robert Morris. Her goal came in the first period and she then assisted on goals by Stephanie Gavronsky and Kristi Kehoe. She now has five points (2-3-5) in three games on the young season.
