PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Two standouts on the Plymouth State University women’s lacrosse team were honored Monday with top weekly honors from the Little East Conference (LEC).
Sophomore Brianna Davis (Framingham, Mass.) and senior Kalie Judd (Peabody, Mass./Veterans Memorial) were named LEC Women’s Lacrosse Offensive and Defensive Player of the Week, respectively. They helped lead the Panthers to a 2-0 record last week, including a key victory over Keene State that gave PSU a share of the LEC regular season title.
A sophomore attacker, Davis (right) led PSU with eight goals and one assist in the 2-0 week. She scored a game-high five goals and collected four draw controls in the pivotal game against Keene State, including scoring the game-clinching goal with six minutes remaining, and she recorded three goals and one assist in Saturday’s 12-8 victory over Norwich in the regular season finale.
A Second Team All-LEC as a freshman last year, Davis has continued as one of the top offensive players in the conference. She has scored 45 goals, 13 assists and 58 points this season and ranks third in the Little East in goals per game, eighth in assists per game and fifth in points per game. Davis also leads the LEC with four game-winning goals.
A two-time All-LEC First Team midfielder, Judd (left) was dominant in the 2-0 week as the Panthers allowed only eight goals in each game. She finished with four draw controls and two ground balls in the pivotal game against Keene State, and she recorded five caused turnovers, five ground balls and seven draw controls in Saturday’s non-conference win over Norwich. Judd also contributed to the offense with two goals and an assists against Keene State and three goals and an assist vs. Norwich.
Judd is among the league leaders in several categories on both offense and defense. She has scored 36 goals, 23 assists and 59 points this spring and ranks seventh in the Little East in goals per game, and second in both assists and points per game. She leads the Little East with 4.2 ground balls and 6.2 draw controls per contest, and ranks fourth with 1.9 caused turnovers per game. Judd is also ranked fourth in the nation in NCAA Division III in draw controls.
Davis and Judd will lead the second-seeded Panthers, 10-4 overall and riding a six-game winning streak, into an LEC semifinal playoff game Thursday at 4:30 p.m. at Arold Field against the winner of Tuesday’s opening round game between third-seeded Eastern Connecticut and sixth-seeded UMass Dartmouth.
