NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA- Sophomore Eleanor Taylor (Fairhaven, MA/Bishop Stang of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's field hockey team has earned Little East Conference field hockey honors.


Taylor has been named LEC Field Hockey Offensive Player of the Week.


In three games last week, Taylor scored nine goals and added two assists for 20 points. She scored all four goals in a come-from-behind 4-3 victory at Clark Tuesday night, including the winning goal in overtime. She scored twice against Wheaton Thursday night in a 6-1 win, and then scored three times in UMD's 4-1 win against Bridgewater State Saturday in their 2010 LEC opener.


"Eleanor is a coach's dream, she deserves every honor she gets," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Nicole Castonguay. "She is a very hard worker who came here to play field hockey and get a great education. She is 120 per cent into everything she does both practice wise and game wise. Eleanor has the respect of everyone on the team, she leads by example, and she is helping to bring our program to a different level."


The Corsairs are 3-1 and will return to action when they host Endicott Tuesday evening.
