The South Atlantic Conference announced its Varsity Gems Women’s Lacrosse Players of the Week for games played in the second week of the 2023 season. Wingate’s Katie Koroly (Archbishop Carroll) was named the defensive player of the week.
Koroly, a freshman defender from Malvern, had an immediate impact on the Wingate defense as the #13 Bulldogs allowed just 10 goals through their first 120 minutes of the season. Koroly led Wingate with six caused turnovers and seven ground balls, adding a draw control.
She had 2 CTs and five ground balls in a 15-3 season-opening win over Belmont Abbey, as Wingate held the Crusaders to just three goals, while holding them scoreless to a 56-minute stretch until the final minute of the game. She also had an assist in the contest. Koroly piled up four caused turnovers in Sunday’s 20-7 win over Young Harris, adding a pair of ground balls.
