NEWPORT NEWS, Va.— The Atlantic 10 Conference has named Richmond senior Sam Stevenson its Lacrosse Offensive Player of the Week,  and Massachusetts sophomore Jamie Schiloski the Defensive Player of the Week. La Salle freshman Katelyn Fay was also named the league's Rookie of the Week. The awards were announced Tuesday for games played from Apr. 15-22.

Stevenson tallied eight goals and two assists for 10 points in a pair of Richmond wins last week. She scored two goals and had one assists in a 13-6 win over Saint Joseph’s. An attacker from Darien, Conn., she also had three ground balls and five draw controls in that game as well. She followed that with a six-goal, one-assist performance in a 16-15 win over Temple. Stevenson recorded seven draw controls in that game.

Schiloski, a sophomore from Framingham, Mass, posted a 2-0 record in goal allowing just seven goals while making 10 saves last week. In the win at St. Bonaventure, made four saves and allowed one goal while playing in just the first half. In the win over second-ranked Duquesne, she allowed six goals while making six saves – the six goals by Duquesne was the second fewest scored for the Dukes all season.

Fay drained career-high five goals off the bench in a season-finale win at St. Bonaventure, while also picking up one ground ball. An attacker from West Chester, Pa., Fay finished the season as team’s top rookie, scoring 27 goals along with three assists for 30 points (fourth on team). She played a role in helping La Salle finish with 10 wins to tie the Explorers all-time winningest season.
