Fanzo Named SAC AstroTurf Men's Lacrosse Player of Week
ROCK HILL, S.C. (TheSAC.com) -- The South Atlantic Conference announced its AstroTurf Men’s Lacrosse Players of the Week for games played during March 25 through March 31. Catawba captured the offensive honors with Cole Fanzo, while Wingate claimed the defensive award with Sean Moran.
A senior attack, Fanzo tallied seven goals at Mars Hill in Catawba’s lone game of the week, a 16-4 rout of the Lions. The Crofton, Md. native helped extend the nationally-ranked Catawba Indians’ win streak to eight games, while adding a pair of ground balls in the effort. This is Fanzo’s first Offensive Player of the Week honor of the season.
A senior midfielder, Moran collected four caused turnovers and scooped up six ground balls in the Bulldogs’ 18-7 win at SAC foe Lincoln Memorial. The Lawrence, N.Y. native anchored a stifling defense that allowed just one goal through the first 39 minutes to allow the Wingate offense to create a 14-1 lead. This is Moran’s first Defensive Player of the Week honor of the season.
