LANCASTER, Pa. -- Franklin & Marshall's Tommy O'Connor was named the Centennial Conference (CC) Defensive Player of the Week for men's lacrosse, announced by the league office on Monday. The honor is first for O'Connor and for a member of the F&M team this season.
O'Connor (Rye, N.Y./Iona Prep) registered three caused turnovers with seven ground balls in F&M's 17-7 win over Swarthmore Saturday afternoon. O'Connor and the Diplomat defense held the Garnet to their lowest scoring output of the season and nearly seven goals below their scoring average in the victory.
F&M returns to action on Wednesday when the Diplomats host Gettysburg at 7:00 p.m.
