Meredith Lazarus Earns Weekly Honors for Lacrosse Play
March 29, 2005
Virginia lacrosse student-athlete Meredith Lazarus earned a host of recognition for her play in the Cavaliers’ two wins last week, earning ACC Player of the Week honors along with recognition by both insidelacrosse.com and womenslacrosse.com. This marks the second consecutive week that a Virginia lacrosse player earned an honor from the ACC and the two websites.
Lazarus had three draw controls, two caused turnovers and a ground ball as the Cavaliers defeated the #16 Tribe 16-7 on Tuesday (Mar 22). Her first draw control came after Virginia tied the game early in the contest and gave Virginia the possession that led to the goal that put the Cavaliers ahead to stay.
In the game against Princeton, Lazarus and the rest of the Virginia defense held the #2 Tigers to their lowest scoring output of the 2005 season, allowing only one goal in the first half and just four for the game. Lazarus had five caused turnovers and four ground balls to go along with one draw control. Again the draw control came after the Cavaliers tied the game early in the contest and set up the go-ahead goal just seconds later.
Last week Ginger Miles was named the ACC Player of the Week and earned recognition on the insidelacrosse.com honorable mention list, while Molly Urlock was tabbed by womenslacrosse.com for their honor roll.
Virginia lacrosse returns to action on Wednesday, March 30 as the Cavaliers travel to Harrisonburg to take on the Dukes of James Madison. Game time is 7:00.
