Senior goalie Mikey Meagher (Liverpool, N.Y.) has been named the first WomensLax.com Player of the Week of the 2013 season, announced by the web site on Monday.
Meagher was a key component in the No. 3 Gators 5-3 win over No. 5 North Carolina in Saturday’s regular-season opener. Meagher recorded nine saves and allowed only three goals in the contest on 20 shots on goal. She also helped keep UNC scoreless in the second half after they scored all three goals in the first eight minutes of play.
The win marked the first victory over the Tar Heels and the first win over an ACC opponent. Previously, the Gators were 0-4 against ACC foes with three loses to UNC and a loss to Duke in the NCAA tournament.
Florida is back in action Wednesday as it travels to Jacksonville for a 7 p.m. matchup.
