MARSHFIELD, Mass.- Two Norwich players were singled out for their recent standout performances on the ice earlier this week when the New England Hockey Conference announced its first weekly award winners of the second semester.

Winger Livia Brooks earned Player of the Week after posting seven points in two games. She recorded four goals and two assists against Salem State, becoming the ninth player in program history to score four goals in a game,. The last Cadet to accomplish that feat was Mikah Baptiste in 2022 against Southern Maine. Brooks is the third player in program history to register six points in a game after Julie Fortier reached that mark in 2012 before Amanda Conway followed suit in 2019.

Brooks’ linemate Madison Anderson also piled up seven points last week. She recorded a goal and an assist before tallying two goals and three assists the next day against Salem State. During the second game, she became the 16th player in program history to register five points in a game.

The twin seven-point performances place the two first-year NCAA players in the top of every offensive statistical category in the NEHC. Brooks leads the conference in points (21) and goals (11). She is also tied for the lead in assists (10). Anderson is tied for second in points (15) and tied for third in goals (eight).
