Landmark Announces Players of the Week

Landmark Announces Players of the Week

MADISON, N.J. - The first full weekend of conference play has helped nine student-athletes receive selections as Landmark Player of the Week recognition. The Landmark Player of the Week selections are made by the Landmark Conference office.

Men's Cross Country:
Moravian’s Matthew Lutcza was the team’s top performer at the Dickinson Long/Short Invitational. Running in the 8,000-meter race, the senior place second among 184 runners with a time of 26:42, which ranks as the second-fastest 8K time in the Landmark this year. His finish helped Moravian place fourth of 21 teams in the 8,000-meter race.

Women's Cross Country:
Junior Samantha Savite helped Moravian to a 3-2 week with several strong all-around performances. She hit .309 with 63 kills for the week, averaging 3.71 kills per set. She reached double figures in kills in all five matches, with a high of 16 in a four-set match against Swarthmore. She also hit .286 or better in four of five matches. Savite added 10 blocks and 10 digs, along with one assist to average 4.03 points per set for the week.

Field Hockey
Offensive Player of the Week:

Kim Hermann earns the honor for the second time in as many weeks in helping Catholic post a 2-0 week. The freshman got off to a fast start in Landmark play, recording a hat-trick in her first conference game as the Cardinals topped Moravian. She opened the scoring with what proved to be the match-winning goal, and then added two more scores. Earlier in the week she also scored what proved to be the match winner in a 2-0 win over 11th-ranked Mary Washington. She finished the week with four goals on just six shots.

Defensive Player of the Week:
Megan Comunale did not allow a goal in 105 minutes of action in a pair of wins for Catholic this past week. The sophomore stopped five shots in 70 minutes to earn the shutout as Catholic knocked off 11th-ranked Mary Washington. She then played the first half of Catholic’s Landmark-opening 6-0 win over Moravian, recording one save and not surrendering a goal.

Men's Soccer:
Offensive Player of the Week:

Mike Brennan helped Catholic open its Landmark season with a convincing 4-0 victory over Moravian. The junior scored two of the team’s four goals, and led the team with four points and six shots for the week. He also played a part in the defense that limited Moravian to 10 shots and no goals in the Landmark match.

Defensive Player of the Week:
Goalkeeper Steve Baum played a key role in Goucher posting a 2-0 week including the team's first Landmark win of the season. Against conference foe Scranton, the senior stopped eight shots and did not concede a goal, including stopping seven shots in the second half as Scranton worked to overcome a 1-0 deficit. He ultimately faced 24 shots but did not concede a goal to help the Gophers claim the 1-0 win and snap a 20-game conference winless streak. He also stopped six shots and conceded just one goal earlier in the week as Goucher defeated Lancaster Bible 2-1. Baum allowed only one goal in 180 minutes while making 14 saves for the week.

Women's Soccer:
Offensive Player of the Week:

Marissa DeParto was a significant offensive contributor as Susquehanna posted a 2-0 week. She scored the first goal of her team's comeback to spark a 3-2 come-from-behind win over Drew on the road in the team's Landmark opener. Her unassisted goal in the 41st minute cut Drew's lead to 2-1 and began the team's comeback. Earlier in the week she scored once an added an assist in a 4-0 win over Lycoming to earn the River Derby Cup for the Crusaders. 

Defensive Player of the Week:
Junior defender Amanda Kresge anchored a defense that did not yield a goal in a pair of Scranton victories. The team opened Landmark play by recording a clean sheet in a 2-0 win over Goucher, and earlier in the week kept Marywod off the scoreboard in a 1-0 win. Kresge helped limit the two opponents to a total of five shots in the two matches, while also serving to jump start the Scranton offense with clearing passes. Scranton’s defense has not allowed a goal in the last 232 minutes of action. 

Volleyball:
Junior Samantha Savite helped Moravian to a 3-2 week with several strong all-around performances. She hit .309 with 63 kills for the week, averaging 3.71 kills per set. She reached double figures in kills in all five matches, with a high of 16 in a four-set match against Swarthmore. She also hit .286 or better in four of five matches. Savite added 10 blocks and 10 digs, along with one assist to average 4.03 points per set for the week.
