PSU Women’s Lacrosse player named New England Co-Player of the Week

PLYMOUTH, N.H. - The leading scorer on the Plymouth State University women's lacrosse team was honored by the Eastern College Athletic Conference Wednesday with a top regional weekly honor.

Senior Annie Pinault (Framingham, Mass.) was named the Division III New England Co-Offensive Player of the Week by the ECAC. She was also named Little East Conference Offensive Player of the Week on Monday.

A senior attackwoman, Pinault (right) registered 17 points in three games on 14 goals and three assists, leading PSU to a perfect 3-0 week. She scored four goals in Thursday's 15-9 non-conference win at Colby-Sawyer, added six goals in Saturday's 18-4 LEC win at UMass Dartmouth, and capped the week with four goals and two assists in PSU's 20-7 victory Sunday over Western Connecticut. The six goals in the LEC win over UMD was a career-high, and included career goal #100. She also collected eight draw controls and four ground balls for the week. Pinault has 42 goals, 16 assists and 58 points this spring, leading the LEC in assists and ranking in the top three in goals and points.

Pinault shared this week's honor with senior Ann Clark (Worcester, Mass.) of Worcester State College, who led the Lancer offense with 15 goals and seven assists in a 3-0 week and was named New England Women's Lacrosse Alliance Player of the Week.

The Panther lacrosse team wraps up the regular season this week, with the LEC Tournaments slated to begin on Tuesday, May 1.
