ACC Players of the Week Presented by Chevrolet

Boston College's Jessie Coffield

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Maryland senior attacker Sarah Mollison and Boston College sophomore midfielder Jessie Coffield have been named Atlantic Coast Conference Women’s Lacrosse Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week, respectively, for the period ending on Monday, April 4.

Mollison was spectacular offensively as Maryland picked up two more wins last week to move to 12-0 this season. The senior from Melbourne, Australia, started off the week by tallying her 100th career assist at Towson, while racking up a career-best 10 points off five goals and five helpers to lead the top-ranked Terrapins past the Tigers. Mollison continued her attacking prowess Saturday as Maryland routed a defensively-sound Penn squad, 16-4. The Tewaaraton nominee tallied five points on a pair of goals and three assists. She moved into third all-time in career assists at Maryland. The captain also registered three draw controls, two ground balls and a caused turnover on the week.

Coffield was matched up against seventh-ranked Virginia’s Julie Gardner, the Cavaliers’ top offensive threat, who leads the team in points this season on 20 goals and 18 assists. Coffield, a sophomore from Alexandria, Va., held Gardner to zero goals and just one assist for the game. Coffield’s efforts also helped the 17th-ranked Eagles to a 12-6 ACC victory – UVa’s lowest goal output of the season.

ACC Women’s Lacrosse teams return to action tomorrow (April 6), as Virginia hosts Virginia Tech in a conference 7:00 p.m. match-up.
