Boston College sophomore midfielder Mikaela Rix (April 12)

An All-Atlantic Coast Conference selection as a freshman, Rix led the Eagles to the upset of the week, scoring four goals in a 10-9 home win over then-No. 5 Duke. All of her goals came in the first half and helped build a 7-5 halftime lead; she also played a key role with four draw controls as the Eagles won 14 of 21. It was the Eagles' first win over the Blue Devils and gave them a school-record three ACC victories. Rix, a veteran of the world-champion 2011 U.S. under-19 team, is second on the Eagles in goals and points, and leads the team in draw controls and ground balls.
