The five week of the 2021 NCAA season is officially in the books and every conference that is playing has gotten underway! So, it is officially lacrosse season across the board.
Here’s our three stars from week five of the season:
Logan Wisnauskas, Attack, Maryland
In an early March version of ‘The Rivalry” the senior midfield had himself a career day to help pace the Terrapins offense in a 18-10 victory in which they owned the second half. Wisnauskas ended the contest with a career-high in points and assists, tallying nine points (2G/7A).
Mike Sisselberger, Faceoff, Lehigh
The Lehigh Mountain Hawks hadn’t beaten the Loyola Greyhounds once in program history. That was case until Saturday when Lehigh topped Loyola 10-6 in a matchup between two of the top-tier Patriot League squads. Sisselberger was a major driving force behind the Mountain Hawks’ victory, going 16-for-19 (84%) at the dot and scoring a goal.
Tehoka Nanticoke, Attack, UAlbany
In his season debut, Nanticoke picked up exactly where he left off last season, which saw him have, arguably, the best start of his career. The senior attackman put up seven points (3G/4A), which included a goal scored from the ground, to lead the way for the Danes in their 16-6 win over Hartford to open America East play.
Tye Kurtz, Attack, Delaware – 11 points (5G/6A) @ Fairfield
Adam Charlambides, Attack, Rutgers – Nine points (4G/5A) vs Michigan
Alex Simmons, Attack, Denver – Nine Points (5G/4A) @ St. John’s
Tommy Burke, Faceoff, Vermont – 14-for-18 (78%) vs UMass Lowell and 24-for-34 (71%) vs Syracuse
JC Higginbotham, Goalie, Bellarmine – 15 saves vs Notre Dame
