PLYMOUTH, N.H.. – A Plymouth State College women’s soccer player has been named the Little East Conference Co-Player of the Week for her contributions last week, as both the Panther men and women inched up in the regional and national polls.

Sophomore forward Caitlin Cook (Cutchogue, NY) was selected the LEC Co-Player of the Week for the first time this season. She had four goals in a pair of Panther wins last week, including the game winning goal in a 3-0 win over previously top-ranked Bowdoin College, and three goals in an LEC win over UMass Dartmouth.
