Salisbury's Raab Earns CAC Weekly Nod

from press release

YORK, Pa.
- The Capital Athletic Conference announced its weekly Player of the Week awards and Salisbury University freshman midfielder Roxanne Raab (Fallston, Md.) was named the women's lacrosse recipient for the week of March 15. This marks the first time a member of the SU women’s lacrosse team has received the distinction this season.

Raab led the No. 2-ranked Sea Gulls (7-0, 2-0 Capital Athletic Conference) to a pair of victories for the week. The Fallston, Md., native scored two goals and caused three turnovers in Salisbury’s win over CAC member York (Pa.) College on Friday. In addition the freshman scooped up one ground ball and won one draw control.

Raab followed that up with the best performance of her young career in the victory against Roanoke College on Sunday. Raab set new career-highs in both points (five) and goals (four); in addition she dished out one assist, caused one turnover, scooped up one ground ball and won one draw control. For the season she has 13 points on 11 goals and two assists.

The Sea Gulls are set to hit the road for a non-conference contest with Virginia Wesleyan College scheduled for Tuesday at 1 p.m. The game was originally scheduled for March 3 but was postponed due to an unplayable field surface.
