Lax Athletes Garner Player of the Week Honors


WASHINGTON- Juniors Becky Borrell and Sean McKenna picked up Defensive Player of the Week honors for their tenacious efforts in this week's Landmark Conference contests.

Borrell produced another strong defensive effort as the women's lacrosse team capped their unbeaten conference season with wins over Moravian and Scranton. The defender managed five ground balls, three caused turnovers and one draw control and helped hold Scranton to five goals and nine shots. She also netted her first goal of the season in the win. Earlier in the week, Borrell scooped up four groundballs in a CUA victory over Moravian.

McKenna helped lead the men's lacrosse team to a perfect 2-0 week in conference play. The junior recorded 13 saves and gave up just three goals at Scranton, his lowest total in a Landmark match on the year. He also added a ground ball defensively for the Cardi­nals. Additionally, McKenna added five saves in CUA's win over USMMA earlier in the week.

The men's lacrosse team will go into the Landmark Tournament as the #3 seed, facing off at Drew University Wednesday, May 5, at 4 p.m. The top-seeded women's lacrosse team will host Goucher College Wednesday at Cardinal Stadium at 4 p.m.
