CLEVELAND - The Mid-American Conference announced Tuesday its weekly field hockey awards. Earning MAC Offensive Player of the Week was Miami junior forward Alyssa Logan (Los Gatos, Calif.). It is the first weekly MAC award for Logan in her career.
Logan had a career game in Miami's 9-1 victory over Appalachian State on Friday. She recorded three goals for her first career hat trick. It included a stretch of two goals in less than two minutes late in the first half, changing a 1-0 lead into a 3-0 lead at halftime, and setting the stage for Miami to blow the game open in the second half. She contributed to that effort when her chip in goal during a scramble in the 54th minute made it 5-1 and gave her the first hat trick of her career. After not scoring her previous two seasons, Logan has now become a key player for the RedHawks with five goals and three assists for the season.
This is the second straight week that a Miami field hockey player has won a MAC award. Last week, Sarah Mueller was named MAC Defensive Player of the Week.
The RedHawks return to action on Saturday when they travel to Ball State for a 1 p.m. game.
