Week nine of the college lacrosse season is officially in the books. And while there were outstanding performances across the country, here’s our three stars from week nine of the season.
Pat Kavanagh, Attack, Notre Dame
The Notre Dame Fighting Irish picked up their first ACC win of the season on Saturday, taking down Syracuse 18-11 in the Dome. Kavanagh, as usual, was a massive part of the Irish’s offense effort as he scored four goals and dished out five assists for nine points in the victory.
Jared Bernhardt, Attack, Maryland
Jared Bernhardt led the way for the Maryland Terrapins in their 17-10 win over Penn State to keep their unbeaten streak alive. The fifth-year attackman ended the day with five goals and three assists for eight points.
