Seymour Earns ECAC Defensive Player of the Week Honors

DANBURY, Conn. - Wesley College Field Hockey senior Morgan Seymour was named ECAC Defensive Player of the Week on Tuesday after leading the Wolverines to a 2-1 record, including a pair of shutouts. 

Seymour was named the ECAC Defensive Player of the Week after recording six defensive saves in a 2-1 week for the Wolverines. Against Shenandoah on Tuesday, Seymour made three crucial defensive saves to keep the Hornets out of the cage and help Wesley earn a 1-0 win. Against CNU, the senior added two more defensive saves. In Saturday's 5-0 win over Hendrix, Seymour added a defensive save, swatting a lifted ball out of the air before it found the net, and then dished off an assist later in the game. Seymour has recorded 19 defensive saves on the season, leading the CAC and the nation in the category.

Wesley will face off against St. Mary's College on Tuesday evening in hopes of locking up a CAC playoff spot for the first time since 2013.
