York, Pa. – Junior Lacey Brown (Monkton, Md./Hereford) claimed her first career Capital Athletic Conference Women's Lacrosse Offensive Player of the Week award Monday afternoon. Brown earned the honor for the week ending April 16 as announced by Assistant CAC Commissioner Tim Mowrer.
Brown is the first Seahawk to be honored as the CAC Offensive Player of the Week this season. She secured this week's accolades after totaling nine goals and two assists in a 2-0 week for the St. Mary's College of Maryland women's lacrosse team (9-8, 5-3 CAC). Last week's two wins helped the Seahawks secure the No. 4 seed in the upcoming CAC Tournament.
The 5-2 attacker started the week with career-highs of six points, four goals, two assists, and two draw controls in a key 16-15 conference win over Christopher Newport University on April 12.
Brown followed that effort up with a new career mark in goals, tallying a career- and game-best five goals in an 18-12 victory over Frostburg State University this past Saturday.
She currently ranks tied for eighth in the conference with eight free position goals and 10th with 33 goals.
St. Mary's will be back in action on Tuesday, April 18 as the Seahawks welcome Christopher Newport (10-7) to Seahawk Stadium for a CAC Tournament First Round matchup at 4:00 p.m.
