O'Donoghue Collects NEWMAC Defensive Player of the Week Honors

BOSTON—Babson College junior Jack O'Donoghue (Scituate, Mass.) was selected as the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Defensive Player of the Week on Monday afternoon.

O'Donoghue was a major force for the Beavers, finishing with 14 ground balls and seven caused turnovers in narrow losses to 15th-ranked Bates and Union, which is receiving votes in the USILA poll. He opened the week with eight ground balls and three caused turnovers in a 10-8 setback against the Bobcats, and then recorded six ground balls and forced four turnovers as the Green and White dropped a 13-12 decision to the Dutchmen in overtime.

O'Donoghue also scored a pair of goals against Union, which were just the second and third tallies of his career. 

Babson (1-2) returns to action on Thursday when it hosts UMass Dartmouth at 5 p.m.
