Davidson Lacrosse’s Braeden Dial Name A-10 Rookie of the Week
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. — For the third time this season, freshman Braeden Dial claimed the Atlantic 10 Women’s Lacrosse Rookie of the Week award for games played during the week of March 25-31, as announced today by the league office.
The first-year attacker gave Davidson its 15th weekly award since joining the A-10 in 2014-15. Dial already is the first Wildcat in program history to win the rookie of the week three times in a season.
A native of New Canaan, Conn., Dial led Davidson for the week in games at La Salle and home vs. Duquesne with four goals and four assists for eight points. She added two groundballs and a caused turnover, and converted her lone free-position shot.
Dial tied her season bests with four goals and six points against Duquesne this past Sunday. She dished out two assists in a road win at La Salle on Friday, getting one groundball and a caused turnover as well.
The eight-point week gave her a team-best 37 points and the four goals pushed her season total to a team-high 23. The eight shots she took on the week also pushed her team-best total to 73, with 53 of those shots going on goal.
Davidson stays at home and will host George Mason this Friday, April 5, at 5:30 p.m.
