Fletcher '17 honored by NESCAC for women's lacrosse
Hamilton College’s Morgan Fletcher '17 (Weston, Mass./Wayland HS) has been named NESCAC Women’s Lacrosse Player of the Week. Fletcher helped the Continentals to a pair of wins last week.
The midfielder scored five goals, picked up five ground balls and caused four turnovers in Hamilton’s two victories.
