Rebecca German of Sandwich is a member of the WPI women's soccer team that secured the program's first NEWMAC regular season championship this past Saturday with a 3-0 victory over Mount Holyoke.

The Engineers share the regular season title with MIT and, thanks to WPI's 2-1 double OT win in the head-to-head matchup on September 17, the Crimson and Gray will be the top seed, and host, for this weekend's NEWMAC Women's Soccer Championship.

WPI (14-2-2), which is ranked fifth in the NSCAA Division III New England Coaches Poll and more importantly eighth in the NCAA Division III Regional Rankings, will face the winner of Tuesday's 4/5 game at noon on Saturday.

Mark Therrien, assistant sports information director at WPI, describes Ms. German as, "an invaluable member of the team on game day, Becky records stats and participation, relays sub information to the press box and more from the table at field level.  She is a biology and biotechnology major and a rare four-year manager."
