NEWPORT NEWS, Va. — For the fourth time this season a Davidson women’s lacrosse player has been recognized by the Atlantic 10 Conference, as senior attacker Gianna New was named the league’s Player of the Week on Monday afternoon. 

New was as dominant as ever last weekend, combining for 12 goals and one assist in two wins for the Wildcats, en route to the second A-10 weekly honor of her career.

The senior matched her career-high in goals, with an incredible seven-goal effort on Sunday against St. Bonaventure, where she also recorded the 100th goal of her career and now has 105 career scores. In a win over Duquesne on Friday night, the New York native also added five goals and dished one assist.

In addition to her offensive prowess, New also grabbed 10 draw controls over the weekend, with six against Duquesne and four against the Bonnies.

New and the rest of the Wildcats will return to action on Thursday, April 14 to take on VCU on the road.
