MORRISVILLE, N.Y. – The Morrisville State College athletics department has announced its weekly award winners, naming field hockey senior Liz Leva (Hoosick Falls, N.Y.) and junior setter/right side hitter Helena Hanes (St. Mary’s, Pa.) the Mustang Co-Athletes of the Week for the week ending Sept. 10.
Leva posted her first collegiate hat trick in a 4-2 defeat of preseason favorite Wells College on Saturday, with all three goals coming in the second half of play.
Her first two tallies came within three minutes of one another, regaining the lead for the Mustangs after a Wells score tied the contest at the half. On both goals, Leva put home rebounds off goalkeeper saves, before collecting her third goal late in the contest off a sweep on the left post to secure the win.
The graduate of Hoosick Falls High is majoring in horticulture business management at Morrisville State. She is the daughter of Marchell and Charlie Leva of Hoosick Falls.
