Megan McCreedy and Jeremy Langlois Named Quinnipiac Athletes Of The Month For October

Quinnipiac field hockey senior Megan McCreedy (White River, South Africa) and men's ice hockey junior Jeremy Langlois (Tempe, Ariz.) have been named Quinnipiac's October Athletes of the Month.

McCreedy matched all previous career highs in the month of October, totaling three goals and seven assists in the month. 

McCreedy also broke the single-season (14) and career (26) assist records with her seven-assist month. The fifth-year midfielder and two-time All-NEC honoree bounced back from an injury in 2010 to lead Quinnipiac in assists while also ranking fourth in total points. 

McCreedy had a goal and an assist in a 2-1 win against Robert Morris on Oct. 7 before following up with a goal against Saint Francis (Pa.) on Oct. 9. She also assisted on three goals in a 6-1 win against Siena on Oct. 21 before totaling a goal and two assists in a series sweep of Bryant (2-0) and Sacred Heart (5-2) as the Bobcats clinched a berth in the 2011 NEC Championship Tournament. 

Langlois has had an outstanding first month for the Bobcats, helping the team to the No. 20 national ranking in the USCHO.com Division I Poll, the 16th ranking in the INCH Power Rankings and 18 votes in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine Poll. Langlois ranks second nationally with 14 total points and eight goals while leading the country with five power-play goals. The junior's eight-game point streak was also the longest to start a season in Quinnipiac's Division I history. He also had a natural hat trick, the first since 2009, against Canisius.

Langlois was also named the ECAC Hockey Player of the Week in the season's first week and was also named the ECAC Hockey/Fischer Hockey Athlete of the Month.

Women's cross country's Morgan Roche (Clifton Park, N.Y.); women's rugby's Emily Carroll (Hull, Mass.); women's volleyball's Tracey Wright (Fair Lawn, N.J.); Kristine Del Mistro (East Williston, N.Y.) and women's tennis' Jacqueline Raynor (Garden City, N.Y.) were also nominated for the female athlete of the month.

Quinnipiac men's soccer's Philip Suprise (Milwaukee, Wisc.); men's cross country's Spencer Mannion (Brookfield, Conn.) and men's tennis' Eric Ambrosio (Lloyd Harbor, N.Y.) were also nominated for the male athlete of the month.
