JU Sweeps A-Sun Women’s Lacrosse Weekly Awards
MACON, Ga. – For leading the Jacksonville University women’s lacrosse team to its first win of the 2014 season, junior goalkeeper Asia Moore and sophomore attack Kelsey Wiglesworth have swept Atlantic Sun Player of the Week honors.
Moore was named Defensive Player of the Week for her 19 saves over No. 4 Florida and Colorado. Playing all 60 minutes in goal, she earned her first collegiate win in the 20-13 victory over the Buffaloes.
It is clear that Wiglesworth will be a force to reckon with this season. In three games, she has received her second A-Sun Offensive Player of the Week award. Against Colorado, she posted a multi-score game with two goals to go alongside two assists. She also led JU’s defensive efforts with six draw controls. Leading the attack in the 21-5 loss to Florida, Wiglesworth notched a pair of goals.
Jacksonville defends the home front on Saturday, Feb. 22 against James Madison. The matchup is scheduled for 11 a.m. and will be held at D.B. Milne.
