MANSFIELD, Mass. – Senior Laura van der Doorn (Beverwijk, The Netherlands) of the ninth-ranked Southern New Hampshire University field hockey team was named the Northeast-10 Conference Player of the Week on Tuesday, as the league announced its weekly award recipients.

van der Doorn led the Penmen to an unbeaten week with a pair of game-winning goals in two games against NE10 opposition.

Southern New Hampshire, ranked No. 9 in the most recent National Field Hockey Coaches' Association (NFHCA) Division II national poll, improved to 10-3 on the year with a 7-0 win over Molloy College on Monday. The Penmen are back in action Saturday (October 19) when they head to the University of New Haven for a 1 p.m. start.
