Rebecca McGovern ’14
Women’s lacrosse (Weymouth, Mass.)
“Becca is a great leader and has been a serious contributor to this team for the past four years. She is the total package with outstanding skills on defense and offense. Bowdoin really keyed in on her Saturday but she still managed to score five goals and have an assist.” – Chris Mason, Head Coach
McGovern scored five of the Ephs’ 12 goals, while assisting on another, in an early season upset of No. 8 Bowdoin last Saturday. McGovern also won four draw controls in the game. She scored her final goal with 2:34 remaining to make the score 11-8 and put the
game out of reach for the Polar Bears. She was selected as the NESCAC Women’s Lacrosse Player of the Week for her outstanding play. In the 2013 season, McGovern scored 21 goals and recorded 12 assists for the Ephs.
Jorge Lopez ’16
Wrestling (Wharton, N.J.)
“Jorge is one of the most talented individuals I have ever worked with. I expect more of the same at NCAAs next weekend. After pinning the defending national champion at regionals, there is no limit to what he can do in Iowa.” – Scott Honecker, Head Coach
Lopez defeated the defending NCAA champion Devin Biscaha of Springfield on his way to clinching the 2014 NCAA Northeast 157 lb. title last Saturday. At the Regional tournament, Lopez pinned his first three opponents, including Biscaha, and won a 6-0 decision in his final match over Ithaca’s Kevin Collins. With the victory, Lopez clinched an automatic bid to the NCAA Championships in Iowa, where he finished sixth in the 149 lb. weight class in 2013.
