Tuesday March 5, 2013Meagher Named ALC Defensive Player of the Week
Senior goalie Mikey Meagher (Liverpool, N.Y.) has been named the American Lacrosse Conference Defensive Player of the Week, announced by the organization on Tuesday.
Meagher earned the nod after her stellar performance against then-No 4/5 Syracuse on Saturday in the Orange Bowl Classic. The senior goalkeeper recorded eight saves in the 14-10 win over the Orange, and played a crucial part in the final minutes of the second half. Meagher recorded three saves on three shots by SU’s Kayla Treanor in the final five minutes of the game, holding one of the Orange’s top scorers scoreless on the evening.
She also allowed just four goals in the second half helping keep the Orange and Blue’s lead intact for the entire contest. In addition, Meagher recorded two ground balls and a caused turnover in the contest.
The second-ranked Gators are back in action today as they host No. 9/12 Loyola in a non-conference matchup at Donald R. Dizney Stadium. Opening draw is set for 1 p.m.
