GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – Syracuse senior attacker Kayla Teanor has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Women’s Lacrosse Offensive Player of the Week, while Virginia sophomore goalie Rachel Vander Kolk is the ACC Defensive Player of the Week.  

Treanor registered five points on four goals and an assist in Syracuse’s season-opening 17-6 win over No. 13/12 Loyola. Three of her four tallies came in the first half during the Orange’s 10-1 scoring run to go ahead 11-3 at halftime. The Niskayuna, New York, native also set the single-game school record with 19 draw controls against Greyhounds, a total that ranks fifth on the NCAA Division single-game record list. 

This is Treanor’s fourth ACC Offensive Player of the Week honor of her career. 

Vander Kolk made a game-high 12 saves and played the entire 60 minutes to help Virginia top No. 4 Northwestern 10-8 on Feb. 13. One of her 12 stops came with four minutes to play to hold the Wildcats to eight goals and scoreless for the remainder of the game. The Severna Park, Maryland, native also led the Cavaliers with five ground balls. This is Vander Kolk’s second ACC Defensive Player of the Week honor of her career. 

ACC teams will be back in action on Wednesday, Feb. 17.
