CHARLOTTESVILLE – Virginia senior forward Meghan Lenczyk (McLean, Va.) was named the TopDrawerSoccer.com National Player of the Week, the site announced Monday. Lenczyk recorded four goals and an assist in the Cavaliers’ wins over Liberty and Colgate last week.
In the 4-0 win over Liberty in Friday’s season opener, Lenczyk had two goals and an assist. She followed that with another two-goal performance in the Cavaliers’ 6-0 win over Colgate on Sunday. She became the first Cavalier to have consecutive multi-goal games since Angela Hucles in 1997.
Lenczyk becomes the second Cavalier to win the award. Last year, Caroline Miller (Rockville, Md.) received the honor on Sept. 1.
The Cavaliers (2-0) open the road portion of their schedule next week as they play in the Penn State Invitational. Virginia meets the host Nittany Lions on Friday night and Connecticut on Sunday afternoon.
