PERRY, N.Y. - Loyola University Maryland goalkeeper Jacob Stover was named the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association/Lids Team Sports National Defensive Player of the Week on Wednesday after two solid games.
Stover made his first two starts between the pipes for Loyola, and he posted a combined goals against average of 4.39 and a .724 saves percentage in wins over Georgetown University and Bucknell University.
Stover made nine saves on 16 shots on goal last Wednesday against the Hoyas and allowed only seven goals.
Three days later, the freshman from Hunt Valley, Maryland, yielded a single goal in more than 49 minutes of action between the pipes. Stover made 12 saves against the 13 shots on goal he faced against Bucknell.
In addition to this award, Stover was one of three players to earn Corvias Patriot League Weekly Honors. He was named the Goalkeeper of the Week, while Foster Huggins picked up Defensive Player of the Week laurels, and Pat Spencer earned his third Rookie of the Week nod this season.
The Greyhounds return to action on Sunday, April 3, when they travel to Hamilton, New York, for a 12 noon game at Colgate University that will air nationally on CBS Sports Network.
