April 11, 2016

CENTER VALLEY, Pa. — The Patriot League announced its weekly awards for April 4-10 in men’s lacrosse, with Army West Point becoming the first team to collect four of the five honors in the same week. (Boston University and Loyola Maryland have twice earned three awards in a week, while Navy and Bucknell have accomplished the same feat once.) This week also marks the first time this season that four of the five weekly honors were awarded to freshmen.

The Black Knights’ freshman Nate Jones picked up both Corvias Offensive Player of the Week and Rookie of the Week. Classmate AJ Barretto garnered his first weekly award, earning Corvias Goalkeeper of the Week, while senior Austin Schultz was named Corvias Defensive Player of the Week. Bucknell freshman Jarett Witzal earned Corvias Faceoff Specialist of the Week.

Honorable mention went to Navy junior Brady Dove and Loyola Maryland freshmen Jacob Stover and Pat Spencer.

Patriot League Men’s Lacrosse Weekly Awards

CORVIAS OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
NATE JONES, ARMY WEST POINT Fr., A, Alexandria, Va.
Jones led Army West Point to a dominant 15-4 win over Boston University on Saturday, en route to clinching a spot in the Patriot League Tournament. The freshman posted a career-high five goals, including a natural hat trick in the first half when he scored three-straight goals as part of the Black Knights’ 9-0 run to open the first half of the game. He added two more in the second half to bring his total to five and has now scored at least three-goals in six of Army’s 10 games this season. Jones also picked up two ground balls and caused a turnover in the contest.

CORVIAS DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
AUSTIN SCHULTZ, ARMY WEST POINT Sr., D, Lancaster, Pa.
Schultz anchored a Black Knight defense that allowed just four goals against Boston University – a team averaging over nine goals per game coming into the weekend. The senior grabbed two ground balls and forced three turnovers, helping to push the Terriers into 22 total turnovers and five failed clears. Led by Schultz, the Army defense has not allowed more than eight goals in a game in its last five outings.

CORVIAS FACEOFF SPECIALIST OF THE WEEK
JARETT WITZAL, BUCKNELL Fr., F/O, Bethesda, Md.
Witzal set a new record for the Bison when he broke the single-game record for faceoff wins with 21 in Bucknell’s 15-10 win over Mount St. Mary’s on Friday. The freshman was dominate at the X, winning 21 of 27 (.778) in addition to picking up six ground balls. The Bison trailed 8-6 at the half, but Witzal won 10 of the first 11 draws in the second half to change the momentum and help Bucknell outscore the Mountaineers 9-2 after the break.

CORVIAS GOALKEEPER OF THE WEEK
AJ BARRETTO, ARMY WEST POINT Fr., GK, Darlington, Md.
Barretto earns his first weekly award of his collegiate career after stifling Boston University and allowing just four goals on 22 shots faced in the Black Knights’ 15-4 victory on Saturday. The four goals were a season low for the Terriers, and the win secured a spot in the Patriot League Tournament for Army West Point. The freshman held Boston U. scoreless for 29 of the first 30 minutes, allowing the Black Knights to jump out to a 9-0 lead. Of his eight saves on the day, seven came in the first half. Barretto has now allowed single digits goals in all but two games this season.

CORVIAS ROOKIE OF THE WEEK
NATE JONES, ARMY WEST POINT Fr., A, Alexandria, Va.
Jones led Army West Point to a dominant 15-4 win over Boston University on Saturday, en route to clinching a spot in the Patriot League Tournament. The freshman posted a career-high five goals, including a natural hat trick in the first half when he scored three-straight goals as part of the Black Knights’ 9-0 run to open the first half of the game. He added two more in the second half to bring his total to five and has now scored at least three-goals in six of Army’s 10 games this season.

BRADY DOVE, NAVY Jr., FO, Stevensville, Md.
Dove won 17 of 24 draws he took on Saturday in Navy’s 16-9 win over Colgate, coming up just two shy of the stadium record and three short of the school record. The junior picked up a season-high tying 11 ground balls and became the program’s all-time leader with 224. Dove also scored his first goal of the year off a faceoff win just 21 seconds into the second half.

JACOB STOVER, LOYOLA MARYLAND Fr., GK, Hunt Valley, Md.
Stover made a career-high 14 saves, including four one-on-one situations, to help the Greyhounds to an 11-10 road win at Lehigh on Saturday. The freshman faced 24 shots on goal, 35 overall, and gave up 10 goals to the Mountain Hawks. Stover also had an assist in the first half on a man-down goal.

PAT SPENCER, LOYOLA MARYLAND Fr., A, Davidsonville, Md.
Spencer helped lead the Greyhounds to an 11-10 road victory at Lehigh on Saturday, scoring three goals and tallying an assist in the back-and-forth affair.
