Monday April 8, 2013Sydney DuPre Named ALC Rookie of the Week

Gainesville, Fla.

Freshman defender Sydney DuPre (Houston, Texas) has earned her third American Lacrosse Conference Rookie of the Week award for her performance against Johns Hopkins on Saturday, announced by the league on Monday.


DuPre was instrumental in the third-ranked Gators’ 19-9 win over Johns Hopkins on Saturday. She kept Hopkins attacker Jen Cook, one of five Hopkins players, scoreless and limited her to just one shot. The Houston native also picked up a ground ball, draw control and caused a turnover in the win helping Florida improve to 14-1 overall and 2-1 in league action.


In addition, DuPre was part of a defensive unit that allowed just 15 shots on the afternoon and held the Blue Jays scoreless for more than 16 minutes in the first half, taking a 8-4 lead at the break.  It also marked the 13th game of the season that UF has held their opponent to nine goals or less in a contest.


DuPre earned her third weekly nod, the most rookie of the week honors by any conference player this season.  Overall, Florida has won nine weekly honors, the most of any school in the ALC, and has had a winner in six of the past nine weeks.  


Florida is back in action on Sunday as it travels to Vanderbilt for its final regular season road trip of the season. Opening draw is set for 2 p.m. ET.
