The first BIG EAST Attacker of the Week award of the 2017 season belongs to Temple senior Brenda McDermott (North Penn) after a season-opening win for the Owls (1-0) at Rutgers on Feb. 11.
The award is the second all-time for McDermott, who also earned the honor late in the 2016 season.
With a career-tying six points off two goals and four assists, McDermott sparked the Owls to a 13-11 win at longtime region rival Rutgers. She had a hand in four of the five goals in Temple’s 5-0 first-half run to gain a 6-2 lead, and the senior added three ground balls, a game-high four draw controls and a caused turnover.
Temple hosts Monmouth in its home opener at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 15.
