Gettysburg's Stahl Earns CC Defensive Nod

from press released

LANCASTER, Pa.
– Senior Hollis Stahl (Hightstown, N.J./Peddie School) posted her usual team-leading offensive effort last week for the Gettysburg College women's lacrosse team, but her defensive play was even better and led to her second career Defensive Player of the Week award from the Centennial Conference on Monday, March 29.

Stahl covered every bit of turf on Clark Field in a pair of games last week against No. 10 Middlebury College and Swarthmore College. She posted a team-leading seven goals and also paved the way with six ground balls, five draw controls, and nine caused turnovers. In a 10-8 loss to Middlebury, she posted three ground balls and caused four turnovers and nearly led the Bullets to a comeback win. She closed the week with four goals, three ground balls, four draw controls, and five caused turnovers as Gettysburg shut out Swarthmore 17-0.

Stahl was named CC Player of the Week for the fifth time in her career. She was named Offensive Player of the Week twice in 2009 and once in 2008, while also picking up the defensive honor in 2008.

The Bullet junior leads Gettysburg with 29 goals, 24 ground balls, and 22 draw controls and she ranks second on the team with 14 caused turnovers. In addition to her defensive exploits last week, she also moved into ninth on the school's career scoring list with 182 points.

Stahl and the Bullets face off with a pair of non-conference foes this week, beginning with a road trip to Cabrini College on Wednesday, March 31, at 6:30 p.m. Gettysburg closed the week with top-10 battle at The College of New Jersey on Saturday, April 3, at 1 p.m.
