Fairfield, CT - On the heels of a school record-setting performance Saturday night against Villanova, sophomore Zack Frank (Islip Terrace, NY) earned Player of the Week honors from three different organizations Monday. Frank was named the Colonial Athletic Association Player of the week for the week of March 23-29. He also was tabbed the Nike/Inside Lacrosse Division I Player of the Week and the Turfer/New England Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association Player of the Week for the same time periods.
Frank made a school record 27 saves in Sacred Heart's five overtime victory over Villanova Saturday night. Fifteen of those stops came in the fourth quarter and overtime as the Pioneers protected a one goal lead and then held off a Villanova onslaught in the extra sessions. Frank made nine stops in the fourth quarter and made six saves in the five overtime sessions. Frank also picked up nine groundballs in the game.
The Pioneers are back in action Wednesday as they open a four game road trip at Manhattan. Game time is set for 3:30 pm.
