GREENSBORO, N.C. – Boston College’s Covie Stanwick has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Women’s Lacrosse Offensive Player of the Week for the second straight week, while Duke’s Maddie Crutchfield has earned ACC Defensive Player of the Week honors.

Stanwick led the Eagles offense in their 16-15 overtime victory against No. 12 Louisville on March 11. The senior attacker scored a team-high six goals, including the game winner with six seconds left in overtime, and added one assist for seven points for the game. Stanwick followed that performance up with two goals, one assist and three ground balls in a 13-5 decision over Connecticut on March 14 to keep the Eagles undefeated at 8-0 on the year.

With Duke hanging on to a one-goal lead late in Saturday’s ACC contest at No. 12 Louisville, Crutchfield regained possession for the Blue Devils following a turnover by intercepting a Louisville pass. Her caused turnover set up Duke’s final score of the contest and prevented the Cardinals from generating an offensive opportunity in the waning seconds. Crutchfield had another caused turnover in the 10-8 win and registered a career-high three ground balls while assisting Taylor Trimble on a first-half goal. She also helped the defense limit Louisville to single-digit scoring on the day. Against Georgetown on March 11, the freshman midfielder from Concord, New Hampshire, notched one draw control and one caused turnover, while helping to hold the Hoyas to a season-low four goals. At 9-0, the Blue Devils have matched their best start to a season in program history.
