FAIRFIELD, Conn. (March 22, 2010) - Sacred Heart senior Carissa Hauser (East Northport, NY) was named the Northeast Conference Women's Lacrosse Co-Player of the Week announced by the league on Monday. It is Hauser's second award this season.

Hauser turned in her third five-goal game of the season on just seven shots in Friday's 18-3 win over the Blue Devils, while adding a pair of assists, four draws, a caused turnover and a ground ball. Hauser then posted three goals, two assists, six draw controls and two ground balls in a 17-8 triumph over Bryant on Sunday. The East Northport, NY native is the NEC leader in goals per game (3.43), points per game (5.57) and draw controls (4.29/game), and ranks second in assists (2.14).

The Pioneers and Hauser are back in action on Friday afternoon at Wagner.
