Schwarzmann Snags ACC Weekly Honor
March 19, 2013
GREENSBORO, N.C. - Katie Schwarzmann was named Atlantic Coast Conference Women's Lacrosse Defensive Player of the Week, announced Tuesday.
Schwarzmann was key in No. 1 Maryland's defense on the weekend as the Terps held back-to-back opponents to a combined eight goals on just 16 shots. Schwarzmann marked Boston College's Mikaela Rix, holding her to one shot and zero goals in the 13-5 win over the Eagles.
The native of Sykesville, Md., was also tasked with defending No. 18 Stony Brook's Demmianne Cook, who entered the week as the nation's leading goal scorer. Schwarzmann held Cook without a goal or shot in an 8-3 victory. The reigning Tewaaraton Award winner also added four goals and two assists on the weekend.
It is the sixth career ACC weekly award for Schwarzmann, who has four Offensive Player of the Week honors and now has won Defensive Player of the Week twice.
