LANCASTER, Pa. – Marymount University men's lacrosse senior Christian Lutz was named the Atlantic East Conference Defensive Player of the Week for the first time in his career, the league announced on Monday.
Lutz set a career high in faceoff wins, going a perfect 25-for-25 at the "X" in the Saints' Atlantic East tournament first-round victory on Saturday over Wesley College.
He added 19 ground balls, coming up just two shy of his career high and setting the program single-season record. With the effort, he now has 150 ground balls on the year.
Lutz and the Saints will return to the field on Wednesday, May 1 at Gwynedd Mercy University in a semifinal matchup; the game time is 6:30 p.m.
