After a seven-point performance in just the second game of his career, Jacksonville freshman Jacob Greiner (Wedt Chester East) was named the Southern Conference Offensive Player of the Week, as announced Tuesday afternoon by the league office.
A freshman attack from Exton, Pa., Greiner helped lead the Dolphins to their first win of the 2020 season – an 11-9 victory at Marquette last Saturday (Feb. 15) – with a five-goal, two-assist effort. His five goals are currently tied for second all-time in program history in a single game, while his seven points are tied for third all-time in program history.
Greiner also scored in Jacksonville’s season opener against Detroit Mercy on Feb. 1.
Lehigh’s Dickey (Conestoga) earn honors
After filling up the stat sheet in a pair of contests, Lehigh senior Sondra Dickey (Conestga) has been named Patriot League Midfielder of the Week, as announced on Monday. Dickey finished the week with 12 goals, three assists, eight draw controls, four groundballs and four caused turnovers to win her eighth-career Patriot League Midfielder of the Week award and first this season.
Dickey began the week with a career-high seven goals and career-high tying eight points in a 17-11 win at UMBC Tuesday. She also added four draw controls, two caused turnovers and a groundball, and was part of a defensive effort that held the Retrievers to just six first-half shots. Dickey on to post five goals, two assists, four draw controls, three groundballs and two caused turnovers at Penn State Saturday, having a hand in seven of the Mountain Hawks’ nine goals. Defensively, the Mountain Hawks held the Nittany Lions scoreless for 16:47 in the second half. Lehigh held PSU to just one goal in the span of 22:51 and two over the game’s final 25:08.
For the season, Dickey owns a team-high 16 goals, 19 points, 12 draw controls (tied) and eight caused turnovers. With her eight draw controls, she upped her already program-record draw control total to 181 in her career.
Next up, the Mountain Hawks play their third straight road game when they travel to Vanderbilt on Saturday, Feb. 22 to face the Commodores. Gametime is set for 2 p.m. ET.
