Capital Athletic Conference Press Release
Shaffer Earns CAC Player of the Week Honors

WASHINGTON (March 21, 2005) -- Senior attack wing Marisa Shaffer (Fort Washington, PA/Mount St. Joseph) of Catholic University has been named Capital Athletic Conference Athlete of the Week for the sport of women's lacrosse for her performance during the week ending March 20. Shaffer beat out three other nominees for the honor.

Shaffer turned in a solid all-around performance in the Cardinals' 11-4 victory over Washington (Md.) by scoring a pair of goals, picking up two assists, collecting six ground balls and intercepting three passes. Her dominant play in the midfield also played a role in keeping the Shorewomen off the scoreboard the entire first half.
