PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Loyola's Meg Steffe was named to the BIG EAST Conference Weekly Honor Roll today after her standout performance for the Greyhounds in a 13-11 win over then-No. 6 Georgetown last week.
Steffe recorded a career-high 18 saves in goal, helping Loyola defeat a team ranked in the nation's top 10 for the first time since April 2004. She eclipsed her previous high of 16 saves set last season against Syracuse. The 18 she made against the Hoyas are tied for eighth most in Loyola single-game history.
The sophomore stopped 11 shots in the first half, helping Loyola keep within striking distance, 4-3, at the break. She then tallied eight saves in the second frame, as the Greyhounds outscored Georgetown, 10-7, to secure the come-from-behind win.
Steffe also had a save on a point-blank shot and a ground ball in the final minute against the Hoyas.
This season, Steffe leads the BIG EAST Conference with a .521 saves percentage. In BIG EAST play, she has a .547 mark.
The honor is the first of Steffe's career and the ninth honor roll accolade for a Greyhounds' player this season.
