NEW LONDON, Conn.--Connecticut College junior net-minder Katherine Chester of Mendham, N.J. has been honored as the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) Women's Hockey Player of the Week.
Chester helped lead her team to a two-game series sweep against intrastate rival Trinity last weekend that wrapped up a perfect 3-0 week for the Camels. Chester collected 14 of her 37 saves in the third period to lead the Camels to a 2-0 victory against Trinity on Saturday night. She made 34 saves in Friday night's 4-2 win against the Bantams.
Chester closed out a solid weekend of play with a 1.00 goals against average and a .973 save percentage versus Trinity.
She's leading the NESCAC while also ranking 10th in the nation with a .946 save percentage.
The Camels have outscored their opponents 15-3 during their current three-game winning streak.
"Katherine has shown a great deal of poise in net for us all season," Connecticut College Head Women's Hockey Coach Kristin Steele said. "She made some tremendous saves this weekend. Her teammates certainly trust that she has their back."
Chester and the Camels will visit UMass-Boston Tuesday afternoon for a 3:00 p.m. game in Dorchester, Mass.
