Walsh, Reeves Earn Player of the Week Honors
March 17, 2014
WOODLAND, Calif. - San Diego State women's lacrosse senior Meris Walsh (Easton, Md.) and freshman goalkeeper Katrina Reeves (Granite Bay, Calif.) were named Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF) Offensive and Defensive Player of the Week, respectively, the conference announced on Monday.
It is the fifth MPSF weekly award for the Aztecs this season, as Walsh is named Offensive Player of the Week for the second time in the 2014 campaign.
Walsh continued to put up huge offensive numbers this week, recording seven goals with five draw controls in San Diego State victories over LIU Brooklyn on Wednesday, and MPSF foe UC Davis on Saturday. The senior tied a team-high with four goals in the Aztecs' come-from-behind win over UC Davis, and posted a hat trick with three goals in the lopsided victory over LIU Brooklyn, 22-6, in which SDSU set a new program record for most goals in a single game. The Easton, Md., native leads the Aztecs with 19 goals this season.
Reeves collects her first-career conference award after finishing with 15 saves in the Aztecs' home win over UC Davis, 17-8. The freshman goalkeeper had nine saves in the second half alone, and was a big reason SDSU was able to outscore the Aggies 11-2 in the final 30 minutes. The Granite Bay, Calif., native has a 5-1 record in the net this season with 44 saves.
San Diego State (6-1, 3-0 MPSF) takes on Princeton this Saturday, March 22, in a game that will be played at Cathedral Catholic High School beginning at 4 p.m. PT.
