YORK, Pa. – Salisbury University men's lacrosse senior Andrew Ternahan has been named the Capital Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Week for the second time this season, the conference announced on Tuesday.
The Sea Gulls opened up CAC play last week with a 17-5 win on Saturday over the University of Mary Washington where Ternahan and the defense held the visitors to just nine shots on cage. Also in the contest, faceoff man Duncan Campbell went 14-for-20 from the faceoff X with Ternahan as a big part of the success as one of the wingers on the faceoffs.
Individually, Ternahan accounted for eight groundballs and five caused turnovers in the victory. Ternahan now sits at 39 groundballs (fourth in the CAC) and 17 caused turnovers (second in the CAC) for the season.
The Sea Gulls will now return to action on Wednesday, March 22 with a home game against Marymount (Va.) University at 7 p.m.
