Wohner Named Skyline Player Of The Week; Willard Earns Spot On Honor Roll

KINGS POINT, N.Y. (April 23, 2019) – On Monday, the Skyline Conference announced that USMMA freshman Jessie Wohner (Norfolk, Va.) was named the league's women's lacrosse Player of the Week for the week ending April 21. Additionally, senior Meredith Willard (Portland, Maine) was selected to the Skyline weekly honor roll. The praise comes after the duo's performances in the Mariners' two victories last week – 16-6 on Wednesday at St. Joe's and 15-13 at home Saturday against Stockton. 

Wohner tallied a team-high 15 points over the two wins last week. On Wednesday at St. Joseph's, she scored four goals and dished out four assists, before finishing the week by finding the back of the net a game-high seven times in the exciting win over the Ospreys on Saturday. 

Willard tallied 12 points over the Mariners' two games scoring two goals and dishing out four assists on Wednesday before ending the week with six goals, including the 200th of her career, on Saturday.
