Catawba Men's Lacrosse Garners First-Ever National Ranking; Pecchia Named DSC Player of Week

WINGATE, NC -- Catawba goalie Michael Pecchia (Coquitlam, BC, CANADA/Heritage Woods) has been named the Deep South Conference Defensive Player of the Week for the Week ending Feb. 27.  He was joined by Mars Hill senior attack Tyler Farmer (Calgary, Alberta, CANADA) on offense and Mars Hill’s Benton Souers (Portland, OR), who was the Freshman of the Week as announced by league officials on Monday.

Pecchia helped lead Catawba to a pair of wins last week, as the Indians improved to 3-0 on the season and jumped into the USILA National Poll for the first time in school history at #11.  He notched 15 saves in Catawba’s 8-6 win over Pfeiffer.  That total included two saves in the closing minutes to fend off a Falcons rally.

Pecchia played 22 minutes in Catawba’s 24-0 win over Ohio Valley, stopping all three shots he faced as the Indians recorded their first-ever shutout in program history.  The junior had a 4.39 goals against average on the week, with a .750 save percentage, while collecting three ground balls and causing a turnover.

Farmer led the ninth-ranked Lions to a 25-6 league victory over Lenoir-Rhyne University.  In 30 minutes of action, Farmer netted six goals and handed out an assist. He took nine shots on the afternoon, with eight shots on goal as the Lions improved to 3-0 overall and 1-0 in the Deep South Conference.

Souers netted three goals in four shots for ninth-ranked Mars Hill in the victory over LRU.  He also handed out a pair of assists and collected two ground balls as the Lions remained unbeaten on the season.
