GREENSBORO, N.C. – Virginia senior midfielder Brittany Kalkstein has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Women’s Lacrosse Player of the Week for the period ending March 21, announced today. Kalkstein scored five goals and accounted for seven points in a pair of Cavalier victories on the road last week over nationally ranked opponents.
Kalkstein, who is earning her second player of the week honor this season, scored once and collected five ground balls in a 14-7 win at No. 18 William & Mary (March 17), and followed that with a career-day against No. 13 Princeton (March 20). The Baltimore, Md., native tallied a career-high six points on four goals and two assists in another 14-7 win for the sixth-ranked Cavaliers. Kalkstein combined for seven points on five goals and two assists, a team-high seven forced turnovers, four draw controls, and five ground balls for the week.
