GORHAM, Maine -- The Little East Conference announced its weekly women's lacrosse awards today with University of Southern Maine freshman Morgan Eliasen (Lewiston, Maine) collecting two of the four honors. Eliasen was named the Defensive Player of the Week and the Rookie of the Week for the seven-day period ending March 11.
Making her collegiate lacrosse debut this past weekend, Eliasen picked up two ground balls, earned six draw controls and was credited with three caused turnovers to help the Huskies (1-1) defeat Castleton University 12-9. Eliasen also contributed at the offensive end dishing off one assist.
A nursing major, Eliasen is also a member of the USM women's basketball program.
Southern Maine's game scheduled for tomorrow (Tuesday, March 13) at Husson University has been rescheduled to Monday, April 2 (4 p.m.) due to the snowstorm headed for the region tonight and tomorrow. The Huskies next scheduled game is on Thursday (6 p.m.) at Saint Joseph's College.
