Towson, MD – For the second time in as many weeks, a member of the United States Merchant Marine Academy lacrosse squad has been named Landmark Conference Player of the Week.

Sheehy went 14-for-18 on the face-off X, collected a game-high 12 ground balls, caused one turnover, and added an assist to earn Landmark Conference Men's Lacrosse Defensive Player of the Week Honors.
