YORK, Pa. – Less than 48 hours after taking down No. 9 The College of New Jersey, the Capital Athletic Conference gave the fifth-ranked Salisbury University field hockey team two more reasons to celebrate – a pair of CAC Field Hockey Player of the Week nods.
Sophomore forward Catherine Sweeney earned CAC Offensive Player of the Week after scoring three goals off the bench in a 2-0 week for the Sea Gulls. Sweeney netted a pair of goals in Salisbury's 5-0 victory against Johns Hopkins University before chipping in one of SU's three goals in its win against TCNJ.
Senior defender Jessie Todd took home the CAC Defensive Player of the Week award after recording an impressive trio of defensive saves in Salisbury's 3-1 victory over TCNJ. All three of those clutch saves came in the second half.
Sweeney, Todd and the rest of the Sea Gull squad will look to improve their record to 8-1 on Wednesday, September 28, squaring off against Lynchburg College at 4 p.m. in Fredericksburg, Virginia.
