WINTHROP, Mass. – Senior forward McKayla Weaver (Enfield, Conn.) netted Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) Player of the Week honors announced Monday afternoon.
Weaver guided Johnson & Wales to a 2-0 week, which included a 4-3 overtime road win against GNAC foe Simmons University.

Late in the week trailing 2-0 against Simmons, Weaver scored the equalizer in the 15th minute as the Wilcats came back to defeat the Sharks, 4-3.
