Trio Of Men's Lacrosse Players Win Corvias Patriot League Awards

March 16, 2015

CENTER VALLEY, Pa. - Zach Herreweyers, Pat Frazier and Grant Limone were named the Corvias Patriot League Players of the Week for offense, defense and goalkeepers on Monday following the Greyhounds' 12-10 conference victory on Saturday afternoon at the U.S. Military Academy.

The awards are the seconds this season for both Herreweyers and Frazier, while Limone becomes the first freshman this year to win a honor other than Rookie of the Week.

Herreweyers scored six goals for the second time in as many League games, matching his career-high that he set on Feb. 28 against Lehigh University. He scored on 66.7 percent of the shots he attempted against the Black Knights and has now scored two or more in all seven of the Greyhounds' games this season.

He is second in NCAA Division I in goals per game (3.86) as of March 15 games, and his 27 total goals are tied for third nationally.

Frazier had a standout effort on the defensive side of the ball for the Greyhounds with his one-on-one assignment of covering Army All-American John Glesener. Frazier held the Preseason Patriot League Offensive Player of the Year without a goal in the game, snapping Glesener's streak of 21-straight outings with at least one, a mark that was tied for fourth nationally entering Saturday's game.

The Loyola co-captain also had four ground balls and three caused turnovers in the game. Click here to read more about Frazier in an article published today by Press Box Magazine.

Limone was also excellent in goal for the Greyhounds, making a career-high 18 saves on 28 Black Knights shots on goal. He turned away 64.3 percent of the shots on goal he faced, and he also saved two Army shots in the final 2:05 of the contest as the Black Knights were attempting to draw within a single tally.

He also was instrumental in the Loyola clearing game, as Frazier and he helped Loyola go 20-of-21 in transition.

Loyola will be back in action on Wednesday, March 18, when it steps out of conference play to host a 7:15 p.m. game against Georgetown University at Ridley Athletic Complex.
