Stanwick Named ACC Offensive Player of the Week
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Virginia senior attackman Steele Stanwick has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Offensive Player of the Week, as announced by the league office for games played through March 11.
Stanwick accumulated 11 points during the week, including a career-high seven assists against Vermont. In front of his hometown, the Baltimore, Md., native scored a goal and assisted three others in Virginia’s overtime win against then-No. 3 Cornell. His assist in overtime to Colin Briggs served as the difference in the game, and his lone goal against the Big Red ended up being Virginia’s final score in regulation.
The weekly honor is the third of Stanwick’s career. He previously won once in 2011 and once in 2010. UVa has now earned three ACC Offensive Player of the Week nods in four weeks of games this season. Rob Emery won the accolade on Feb. 21 and Briggs picked his up last week.
Stanwick and the Cavaliers return to action on Saturday when UVa travels to Columbus, Ohio, to take on the Ohio State Buckeyes inside Ohio Stadium. The game is set to faceoff at 1 p.m. inside the ‘Horeshoe.’
