Two from Chestnut Hill College earn honors

Senior attack Julia Galantich totaled 17 points (11 goals and 6 assists), two ground balls, nine draws, and three caused turnovers in Chestnut Hill College’s first two contests of the season to earn the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) Women’s Lacrosse Player of the Week award.

She was joined on the league’s weekly report by sophomore Kaley Malampy (Ridley Park), who garnered the Defensive Player of the Week award with five ground ball recoveries and six caused turnovers.

Penn’s Cheeseman earns 2nd Ivy honors

For the second week in a row, University of Pennsylvania goalkeeper Mikaila Cheeseman has been named Ivy League Defensive Player of the Week following her efforts in a pair of wins for the Quakers as Penn improved to 6-0 in 2018.

Cheeseman made 18 total saves while allowing 17 goals over two starts last week, improving her Ivy-leading GAA to 7.33 and her Ivy-best save percentage to .554. Cheeseman now ranks No. 3 and No. 5 in those categories among all Division I goalkeepers.

On Wednesday, Cheeseman made eight saves at Drexel in Penn’s 16-11 win. She followed that up with a 10-save game at No. 25 Georgetown on Saturday. Cheeseman was at her best in the first half, making eight saves and allowing four goals to the Hoyas while her team built a 5-4 lead at halftime. In the second half, Cheeseman allowed just two goals while her team scored 13 and ran away with its third Top-25 win of the season.

St. Joe’s Lane, Kelly, earn A-10 honors

After leading the Hawks to a 1-1 week last week, which included a 12-10 win over Vanderbilt on Sunday, Saint Joseph’s junior midfielder Rebecca Lane (Melbourne, Australia/Maribyrnong College) has been named the Atlantic 10 Women’s Lacrosse Co-Player of the Week while freshman attacker Stephanie Kelly (Melbourne, Australia/Mount St Joseph Girls’ College) has been tabbed league’s Rookie of the Week, it was announced on Tuesday afternoon. The honor marks first of Lane’s career after earning a pair of Rookie of the Week nods in 2016 while Kelly earns her second Rookie of the Week accolade of the season.

Lane registered seven points on six goals and an assist last week. The junior midfielder hit the back of the net twice and added a helper in SJU’s 16-11 loss to then-#11/8 Navy on Tuesday before going off for a game-high four goals in SJU’s 12-10 win over Vanderbilt on Sunday; Lane scored two of the Hawks’ final five goals, including the late equalizer, to lead SJU to the victory.

Kelly scored twice against then-#11/8 Navy and went on to score a goal and add an assist vs. Vanderbilt; Kelly scored just 22 seconds into Sunday’s game against the Commodores to spark a 4-0, game-opening run by the Crimson and Gray.

The Melbourne, Australia duo has combined for 39 points on 24 goals and 15 assists through six games this spring, and both have made all six starts on the attack.
