Longwood is coming off a 2-1 week that saw them down No. 20 Liberty and Central Michigan and fall to No. 17 Rutgers. For her efforts, goalkeeper Katie Wyman was named the Mid-American Conference Defensive Player of the Week for the second time this season. Wyman ranks 9th in the nation in save percentage (.800) and 21st in goals against (1.43). The Lancer offense runs through Leonie Verstraete. Her 4 goals, 41 shots and 21 SOG paces the offense.
