Also honored was Wildcats' goalie, Rose Woolson, who was tabbed Defensive Player of the Week, and Colonials' backstop, Jenna Oler, who was named Rookie of the Week. The awards are for games played Mar. 12-18.

Wood, a sophomore from Hockessin, Del., led Davidson to a 2-0 week against Iona and Campbell. The attacker had one goal on two shots in a 10-8 win against Iona, then followed that with a six-goal performance in a 13-6 victory over Campbell. She also added three groundballs, two caused turnovers and a draw control, while going 2-for-2 on free-position shots.

Donohue scored a total of six goals last week with back-to-back hat tricks at American and against Mount St. Mary's. Against American, the Amherst, N.H., native picked up two ground balls and caused two turnovers in addition to her three goals, while going 1-of-1 from the free position. The senior then led the Colonials to its fourth-straight victory with a trio of goals and a ground ball. Donohue ranks first on the squad with 21 points (20g, 1a) and boasts an .883 shots on goal percentage.

Woolson picked up a pair of wins in goal for Davidson with a stellar week against Iona and Campbell, finishing with a combined 24 saves, a 7.00 goals against average and a 63.2 save percentage. The Baltimore native tallied double-digit saves in both wins, getting 10 against Iona and then 14 at Campbell, marking the fourth and fifth double-digit save games of the season. She had a combined seven groundballs and forced one turnover for the week. Woolson now has 79 saves on the season and an 8.76 goals against average with a 56.4 save percentage.
Oler, a goalie from Columbia, Md., made ten saves while playing all 60 minutes at American, then matched her career-high with 17 saves against Mount St. Mary's, a mark that ranks third in program history.
