Saracco Named to NEWHA Weekly Honor Roll

COLCHESTER, Vt. - Saint Michael's College women's ice hockey junior captain Ella Saracco (Melrose, Mass./Austin Prep) was named to the New England Women's Hockey Alliance (NEWHA) Weekly Honor Roll for the week ending on Sunday, Feb. 27. It was her second accolade of the season, and both within the past month.

Saracco posted two goals and an assist during a four-game week. Saracco lent an assist with a block against Long Island University on Tuesday morning before scoring in both games at Saint Anselm College over the weekend. Saracco netted a tying power-play goal during a 3-1 loss on Friday and scored again while going plus-1 in a 4-2 setback on Saturday. The second-year captain has a career high in goals (7) while matching her best in points (10). With four power-play goals, Saracco is one short of the NEWHA lead.

The Purple Knights, the sixth seed in the NEWHA Tournament, heads to No. 3 Saint Anselm tonight at 7 p.m. for a first-round contest.
