Shorewomen Lacrosse Sweeps Centennial Conference Player of the Week Awards
LANCASTER, Pa. – Washington College has swept the Centennial Conference Offensive and Defensive Player of the Week Awards for women's lacrosse for the week of April 14-20. Senior midfielder Carly Eisenbrandt (Baltimore, Md./Towson) was selected the offensive player of the week, while freshman goalkeeper Allison Remenapp (Woodbine, Md./Century) was picked as defensive player of the week. Both players win their respective awards for the first time.
Eisenbrandt scored a team-high nine points on a team-best seven goals to go along with two assists in a 2-0 week for WC. The senior had game-highs of five goals and six points in Washington's 12-11 double overtime victory over #5 Gettysburg on Saturday to go along with three draw controls which tied for the team high. It was the team's first win over Gettysburg since a 12-9 win on May 1, 1999, and ended a 17-game losing streak to the Bullets. She scored a pair of goals in each and the first goal of the first overtime 49 seconds into the extra period. Eisenbrandt scored the game-tying goal with 2:39 left in the first half to send the game to halftime at 4-4 and put WC ahead for the first time since early in the first half with 15:08 remaining in the second half at 7-6. On Wednesday in an 11-6 victory at Haverford, she had three points on two goals and one assist. She scored the game-winning goal with 21:18 left in the contest to put Washington ahead 7-5 and then assisted on the next goal to give the Shorewomen an 8-5 lead with 18:58 to go in the contest.
Remenapp went 2-0 with a .564 save percentage and a 7.93 goals against average for the Shorewomen this past week. In the team's 12-11 double overtime victory over #5 Gettysburg on Saturday, she matched her personal-high with 14 saves, including a save on a point-blank shot with 5:08 left in the second overtime session to keep the score tied at 11-11. Remenapp made 10 of her 14 saves after halftime in the team's first victory over Gettysburg in 15 years. She also scooped up a pair of ground balls in the win. At Haverford on Wednesday night, she made eight saves in an 11-6 victory, making five of the eight stops in the second half. Had more saves than goals allowed in both games and had 22 saves for the week.
With the win on Saturday over Gettysburg, Washington clinched a spot in the Centennial Conference Tournament for the fourth straight year, a program first, and for the seventh time since the tournament began in 2001.
