WELLESLEY, Mass. — Camden native Eliza Roy, now a junior at Wellesley College, received an accolade from the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference for her athletic play during the week of Aug. 30 to Sept. 5. 

The NEWMAC is an association of 11 academic institutions committed to providing high quality competitive athletic opportunities for student-athletes within an educational and respectful environment that embodies the NCAA Division III philosophy.

Roy, a forward on the women’s soccer team at Wellesley, was named this week's NEWMAC Offensive Athlete of the Week in women’s soccer.

The junior carried Wellesley to two wins over the week, scoring three total goals.

In the first game for the Blue, Roy scored on an unassisted goal late in the first half. In the team's win over Curry College, Roy netted both goals. She scored under seven minutes in the game during the team's home opener. Roy then added an insurance goal late in the second half to secure the victory.

Wellesley sits at 2-0 with its next contest this afternoon against Suffolk.
