Two Philly women were named the IWLCA/StringKing Players of the Week for February 25. This weekly award recognizes the best offensive and defensive performances by payers in Division I, II, and III each week during the regular season.
Offensive Player of the Week
Scottie Rose Growney (Conestoga)– University of North Carolina
Growney scored a career-high six goals in North Carolina’s win over #3 Maryland, leading the Tar Heels to a 19-6 victory.
The junior midfielder also chipped in with a ground ball and a draw control. Growney was instrumental in UNC scoring its most goals ever and registering its largest margin of victory ever against Maryland. Her six goals were the most scored by a Tar Heel against the Terrapins since Erin McGinnis (1996-99) had six in a 19-17 overtime loss on April 24, 1999.
Growney also was named ACC Offensive Player of the week.
Defensive Player of the Week
Alexa Moro – Villanova University
Moro faced 32 shots and made 12 saves, allowing just nine goals for a .571 save percentage as the Wildcats pulled off the upset with a 12-9 victory at #16 Navy on Saturday.
The Midshipmen entered the game averaging 16 goals per game and hadn’t been limited to single-digit scores since May 4, 2019.
