Tingley, Dubois, Foote earn weekly honors
PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Following a seventh Little East Conference (LEC) championship, three members of the Plymouth State University women's lacrosse team were recognized by the league with weekly honors.
Senior Megan Tingley (Natick, Mass.) was named the Offensive Player of the Week, sophomore Sydney Dubois (Goffstown, N.H.) was selected as Defensive Player of the Week and senior Clarissa Foote (Weare, N.H.) earned Goalie of the Week honors.
Tingley was named the LEC Championship Tournament's Most Outstanding Player after scoring seven goals and assisting on nine others as PSU topped fourth-seeded University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, 15-12, in the semifinal round before cruising past second-seeded Eastern Connecticut State University, 19-8, in the championship game. In Saturday's title game she totaled three goals and eight assists, setting a new school record for assists in a game and matching the program mark for assists in a game. This is the fourth time Tingley has been named Offensive Player of the Week.
Dubois helped the Panthers secure their second straight LEC championship after totaling six caused turnovers, six ground balls and seven draw controls in the LEC tournament. She caused four turnovers and grabbed three ground balls in the semifinal win, then posted a team-high six goals to go along with six draw controls, three ground balls and a pair of caused turnovers in the championship. This is her first weekly honor.
Foote posted a 10.00 goals against average, made 14 total saves and grabbed 11 ground balls during the Panthers title run. She did most of her work in the semifinal game, making 13 saves and scooping up six ground balls to help PSU advance to a fifth straight championship game. In the finals she added five ground balls and a save. This marks her third Goalie of the Week award.
The Panthers (14-3), winners of 11 straight games, will face #17 SUNY Cortland in the first round of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division III Women's Lacrosse Championship Tournament on Saturday (May 12) at Amherst College. PSU will be seeking its second NCAA tournament win in program history. The winner will advance to Sunday's second round game against the host Mammoths.
