    Cornell's Rob Pannell Named Ivy League Rookie of the Week

    from Cornell Athletics

    For the second time this season, Cornell University men’s lacrosse player Rob Pannell has been named the Ivy League Rookie of the Week, as was announced this afternoon by the conference office.


    Pannell earns the award after helping the No. 4/5 Big Red split a pair of road games last week, as it fell to No. 5 Syracuse, 15-10, before defeating Dartmouth, 19-6. The freshman attackman achieved yet another milestone, breaking the Cornell rookie record for points in a single-season when he tallied two goals and four assists against the Big Green on Saturday to reach 44 points on the season. Pannell opened the week with a one-goal, four-assist performance against the Orange.


    Pannell currently leads the nation with 4.4 points per game, while his 3.0 assists per game ties him with Duke’s Ned Crotty for first in the country.


    The Big Red welcomes No. 1/1 Princeton (10-1, 3-0) to Schoellkopf Field on Saturday, April 18 for a crucial contest between the only two undefeated teams left in the Ivy League. The winner will control its own destiny as both teams fight for the conference title and automatic qualifying bid to the NCAA tournament.

    Rowan and Loony earn Big East honors

    PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Syracuse senior Katie Rowan (Delmar, N.Y.) is the BIG EAST Women’s Lacrosse Offensive Player of the Week, while senior Bridget Looney (Silver Spring, Md.) has been named to the Weekly Honor Roll for their performances in the Orange’s win against Notre Dame. It is Rowan’s third Player of the Week honor this season and seventh of her career, while Looney is making her first career appearance on the Honor Roll.

    Rowan recorded a game-high six points on four goals and two assists in the Orange’s 14-13 win against No. 8 Notre Dame. She had two goals and two assists in Syracuse’s 10-0 scoring run in the first half, and netted the Orange’s final goal of the half with four seconds remaining. After the Fighting Irish cut Syracuse’s lead to two late in the second half, Rowan scored the Orange’s final goal with 1:55 left on the clock in the one-goal victory. Rowan leads the BIG EAST in scoring this season, averaging 5.46 points per game.

    Looney helped the Orange win 18-of-29 draws with seven, and caused three turnovers, increasing her team-leading total to 22 this season. In addition, she picked up three ground balls and scored a pair of goals as Syracuse posted its 10th win of the season.

    Rowan and Looney are two of five seniors who will play their final regular-season home game on Wednesday when the ninth-ranked Orange hosts No. 20 Cornell at 7 p.m. Admission to the game is free of charge.

    Bubnack, Roa and Miller garner Patriot League honors

    CENTER VALLEY, PA. – Colgate’s Colleen Bubnack (West Genesee), Courtney Miller (Chappaqua, N.Y.), and Christina Roa (Potomac, Md.) were honored by the Patriot League as it released its weekly honors for women’s lacrosse, Monday.

    Bubnack was named the league’s defensive player of the week after posting four goals, five points, nine groundballs, and nine draw controls as Colgate went 2-0 against Marist and Bucknell. The sophomore scored twice and picked up a career-high seven groundballs, and caused three turnovers in the 15-9 victory over the Red Foxes, Tuesday evening. Bubnack added two goals and caused six turnovers as the Raiders stretched their win streak to five games with a 12-7 triumph over the Bison. She is three draw controls away from tying her single season record of 50 set last year and needs five more assists to tie Colgate’s single-season record for helpers (29).

    Roa was named the goalie of the week for the second time this season. The freshman picked up two more victories to improve to 5-0 on the season. Playing the second half in both outings, she made four stops in each game in victories over Marist and Bucknell. Roa earned the same honor two weeks ago.

    Miller picked up her first Patriot League weekly honor after being named the rookie of the week. The freshman scored three goals in each game, including notching the eventual game-winning goal in the victory over Bucknell. Colgate, 12-3 overall, will end the regular season this Saturday at Lehigh. Game time in Bethlehem is set for 1 p.m.

    CaseyPowellLacrosse.com D-III Top 20 for April 7

    Stevenson left no doubt that they deserved the #1 ranking last week as they thrashed the Sea Gulls 12-8 Saturday. That win earned them a unanimous vote as the top team in D-III this week in the CaseyPowellLacrosse.com / JustLacrosse.com Top 20.

    The biggest game of the week, as far as it's influence on this week's vote, seems to have been Western New England's 13-4 thrashing of Endicott. WNE climbed four spots to #8, and Endicott tumbled ten to #17.

    And finally, Geneseo's 6-game win streak keeps them moving up the chart, climbing all the way from #19 to #13.
