From Press Release
University of Cincinnati lacrosse senior Monica Borzillo (Conestoga) was named American Athletic Conference Attacker of the Week while fellow seniors Morgan Dukes and Sam Mlkvy (Eastern Regional-NJ) were tabbed for the league’s weekly honor roll as the first set of awards for the 2021 season were announced Monday.
All three played key roles in UC’s 20-19, season-opening win over Marquette on Sunday, which saw the Bearcats score three goals in the final four minutes to secure the come-from-behind victory.
Borzillo – the 2016 Phillylacrosse.com Co-Player of the Year – scored two of UC’s final three goals and totaled five on the day. She tied her own AAC, school and career marks with six assists and 11 points, also adding two draw controls with no turnovers. Borzillo shares the AAC single-game mark for points with Sydney Pirreca from Florida and the record for assists with three others.
Mlkvy was key in getting UC’s offensive possessions rolling as she set an AAC and UC single-game record with 15 draw controls. Her 15 almost matched Marquette’s team effort of 17. Mlkvy led the American with 97 draw controls in 2019.
