PSU Men’s Lacrosse player repeats LEC honor

            PLYMOUTH, N.H. – The leading scorer on the Plymouth State University men’s lacrosse team was recognized by the Little East Conference for the second straight week on Monday for his high-scoring efforts in two Panther games last week.

            Senior Brian Giroux (Wolfeboro Falls, N.H./Brewster Academy) was named Little East Conference Men’s Lacrosse Offensive Co-Player of the Week, sharing the honor with Keene State College sophomore Griffin Meehan (Simsbury, Conn.)  Giroux also earned the top LEC offensive honor a week ago, the first week of the season.
