YORK, Pa. – The Capital Athletic Conference released its weekly awards on Monday afternoon and freshman midfielder Allie Hynson of the No. 6 Salisbury University women's lacrosse team earned Women's Lacrosse Defensive Player of the Week, the first of her collegiate career.
Hynson put together a career week in the defensive third for the Sea Gulls, helping them to a 2-0 week with victories over Wesley College and Frostburg State University. Against the Wolverines, the Catonsville, Maryland native set new milestones in various categories, causing four turnovers, scooping five groundballs and winning four draw controls. Each category was a game high in the 19-2 victory. Against the Bobcats on Saturday, she registered another ground ball and won three more draw controls in route to a 17-2 win.
With Hynson's accolade, the Sea Gulls have now earned a women's lacrosse honor by the league the past four weeks.
Hynson and the Sea Gulls kick off their three-game home stand on Tuesday, April 7 against Christopher Newport University, before taking on St. Mary's College of Maryland on Friday and No. 14 The College of New Jersey on Sunday. First draw against the Captains is set for 5 p.m., at Sea Gull Stadium.
