Senior forward Emily McNamara was named VCU's Virginia Lottery Student-Athlete of the Week after breaking VCU's school record for points and goals this past weekend.
McNamara recorded seven goals and two assists, leading the Rams to a 2-0 clean sweep of the weekend.
McNamara's first goal against St. Louis set the new marks for career points and goals. She continued to add to her tally after recording three additional goals in the match.
On Sunday's match against Towson, McNamara's three goals and two assists led the team to a 9-0 victory which closed out a 2-0 weekend as the Rams outscored their opponents 16-1.
"I thought it was really great to come out 2-0 this weekend, especially because we have been working really hard but not getting the results that we wanted. Winning two games was definitely a morale booster for the team. To break the school record was an amazing feeling. It's hard to put into words like how it felt. I've been playing since I was nine years old and I've been working my whole life for this sport so to have accomplished something like that is just amazing."
