Fritts named IWLCA National Offensive Player of the Week

WATERVILLE, Maine -- Colby College's Sasha Fritts (Darien, Conn.) earned the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) Division III Offensive Player of the Week honor after scoring 12 goals on 15 shots in two wins last week.

The IWLCA picks one offensive player and one defensive player each for the three NCAA divisions. Fritts earned the New England Small College Athletic Conference Player of the Week honor Monday.

Fritts had seven goals on eight shots in a 15-12 win at Williams College on Saturday. She also had one caused turnover, one draw control, and one ground ball. With the score tied 11-11, Fritts had two of the next four Colby goals to take a 15-11 lead.

Fritts had five goals on seven shots at rival Bowdoin College on Wednesday night. The Polar Bears darted out to a 3-0 lead, but Fritts scored two straight goals to cut the lead to one and keep Colby in the game early. With the Mules up 7-5 at halftime, Fritts had three of Colby's next five goals to go up 12-7.

Fritts is second in the NESCAC in conference only goals (23) to help Colby on its current seven-game winning streak. Colby is 9-3 overall heading into Thursday's 4:30 p.m. home game with Colorado College.

Fritts, who has 28 goals and three assists this season, has 64 goals, 12 assists, and is 10-for-13 on free-position shots in her three years. She has helped the Mules to a 31-13 record during that time.
