Sheehy tied the program record with 11 points on five goals and six assists for Saint Anselm in her team's 19-8 win over the Owls. The performance included the 100th point of the senior's career, making her the 13th student-athlete in program history to reach the milestone. She is Saint Anselm's first NE10 Player of the Week in women's lacrosse since Marissa Daly earned the honor on Mar. 31, 2014.

The Wilmot, N.H. product's 11 points are tied for the fifth-most by a player in a single game in all of NCAA Division II so far this season and are tied for the most by any NE10 player in 2018. Through 39 games during her time on the Hilltop, Sheehy has totaled 113 points on 77 goals and 36 assists, leaving her just outside the top 10 in all three major offensive categories.

Sheehy is currently tied for second in the NE10 with 37 points, while ranking second in goals (24) and third in assists (13). Nationally in Division II, she ranks tied for 13th in points per game (6.17) and tied for 21st in goals per game (4.00).

Winners of four-straight games, Saint Anselm travels to American International College on Friday, Mar. 23 for a 4 p.m. NE10 contest.
