ANNVILLE, Pa. – Albright women’s lacrosse freshman Devon Mela and senior Hayley Joyce each won a MAC Commonwealth Player of the Week award to give the Lions a sweep of the weekly honors.
Mela earned Offensive Player of the Week while Joyce was selected as Defensive Player of the Week for the period of April 10-16.
Mela led the Lions to a 17-7 win over conference Hood with seven points on five goals, including the game-winner, and two assists. Mela also tallied four ground balls, four caused turnovers and three draw controls. More impressively, the freshman only recorded five shots in the game, all for goals.
