Lake Forest College's Michelle Greeneway was named Northern Collegiate Hockey Association Offensive Player of the Week on Tuesday after scoring four goals, including the 100th of her career, during a weekend sweep of visiting Marian University.

Greeneway, a senior forward, started the weekend by receiving her 2015 First Team Academic All-American award from soccer between Friday's first two periods. She later broke a 1-1 tie at the 3:43 mark of the third period on her team record 30th goal of the season and 100th of her career. Greeneway added an insurance score and assisted on a goal later in the period and the Foresters prevailed 5-1.

Lake Forest also blanked Marian 5-0 on Saturday and Greeneway scored two more goals, including one on the power play, and added another assist.

Greeenway currently leads the nation with 33 goals and 46 points. She is just the sixth player in NCAA Division III history to score at least 100 career goals and the only individual in the NCAA record books in any division with at least 100 scores in both soccer and hockey. Friday's game-winning goal was the 20th of her career, which is also tied-for-fourth in NCAA Division III history.

NCHA Players of the Week are selected by the league's directors of public relations and sport information. Greeneway also earned the award twice earlier this season and four other times in her career.
