EASTON, Pa. – Freshman midfielder Carlianne McCabe of the Lafayette women’s lacrosse team earned the Patriot League Rookie of the Week award, the League announced Monday.
McCabe tallied a game-high six goals in Lafayette’s 16-15 win over Monmouth on Tuesday and netted another score in a loss to Holy Cross on Saturday afternoon. The Newtown Square, Pa. native picked up one ground ball and went 2-for-2 in her free-position chances versus Monmouth.
In addition to McCabe’s honors, senior attack Jessica Rothstein and junior midfielder Ana White also earned honorable mentions for their performances this past week. Rothstein netted five goals and a draw control in the win over Monmouth and scored twice with one ground ball against Holy Cross. White tallied three goals, three ground balls and five draw controls in the Monmouth contest and posted another three scores to go along with two ground balls and nine draw controls versus Holy Cross.
"In a week where we weren't playing our best as a team, it is very encouraging to have three players recognized by the League for their performances,” head coach Alison Fisher said. “Carlianne and Jess came up huge against Monmouth posting six and five goals, respectively, in a one-goal win and Ana has been consistently turning in good performances game in and game out. Having a variety of people who are able to make a positive impact is definitely one of the strengths of this team and will be something that we can depend on as we work to get back on track against Wagner on Wednesday night."
Next up for Lafayette is a matchup with Wagner on Wednesday evening in the team’s first game at Rappolt Field this season. Opening draw is set for 7 p.m.
