St. Mary's Sweeps CAC Accolades
from press release
YORK, Pa. – Senior attackman Dennis Rosson (Severna Park, Md./Severn School) and junior defenseman Eric Heisner (Collegeville, Pa./La Salle College) of the St. Mary's College of Maryland men's lacrosse team were named Capital Athletic Conference Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week for the week ending April 17 as announced by conference commissioner, Tom Byrnes, Monday afternoon.
Rosson and Heisner helped the Seahawks (6-8, 4-4 CAC) to a 3-0 week with league victories at Wesley and Hood Colleges as well as their CAC Tournament First Round victory at fourth-seeded York College of Pennsylvania.
Rosson was named the Co-Offensive Player of the Week, sharing the honor with Stevenson University's Kyle Moffitt. He totaled 15 points on 12 goals and three assists in three games, including five goals and an assist during Sunday's playoff victory at York, and was the team's top scorer in all three outings. Rosson is currently in the midst of his longest multiple-goal game streak of the season. He also added five ground balls and one caused turnover.
Heisner was named the Defensive Player of the Week after contributing 11 ground balls and forcing five turnovers, helping the fifth-seeded Seahawks win three-straight road games and advance to the league semifinals. He held his three defensive assignments to just four goals on 12 shots (7 shots on goal), including Hood's leading scorer, Kris Miner, to just one goal and two turnovers.
The Seahawks will return to action tomorrow when St. Mary's travels to top-seeded Stevenson University in Owings Mills for a CAC semifinal matchup at 4:00 pm.
