Camel highlights

• Connecticut College junior Ben Manoogian was named the New England Small College Athletic Conference player of the week in men's soccer after helping the Camels post two victories last week by scoring two goals. He ranks first in the conference in goals (seven) and points (15). The Camels remain unbeaten at 8-0-3 and are tied for second place with a 4-0-3 league mark. With three NESCAC regular season games remaining, they have a shot at breaking the program record for most conference wins (five). They've scored 28 goals overall and allowed just six this season.

Kat Norton's impressive freshman season continues for the nationally-ranked women's soccer team. Norton is tied for second in the conference with six goals. The Camels are in the thick of the NESCAC title hunt with a 5-1-1 league mark. They're 9-1-1 overall.
