Landmark Announces Players of the Week

TOWSON, Md. – The Landmark Conference has released the Players of the Week. The conference will recognize a student-athlete for each sport based on their contributions to their team throughout the season. There were no Cross Country Runners of the Week selected as teams were not in competition.

Field Hockey Offensive Player of the Week
Sam Barcia
Drew (So., F, Berlin, N.J.)

Barcia scored with 2:11 left to propel the Rangers to a 5-4 victory over Scranton on Saturday. The sophomore made an incredible diving effort, one-timing a pass in the back of the cage for the eventual game-winner. The goal was her second of the contest and her Landmark Conference leading, 21st of the season. She now has eight game-winning goals this year with three of them coming against Landmark opponents. In Tuesday's 1-0 victory over Richard Stockton she fed Brooke Gagliano in overtime to give the Rangers their 13th win of the year. Her 21 goals this season tie her for the fourth-most in school history.
Field Hockey Defensive Player of the Week
Madalyn Dennis
Catholic (So., M/D, Reading, Pa.)

The midfielder turned center back was huge this week leading Catholic to a 2-0 record. The sophomore was instrumental in shutting down the Randolph-Macon attack during the team's 4-0 shutout victory in which the Cardinals allowed only three shots. Dennis then showed her offensive prowess, scoring her first goal of the season with the game-winning goal in a 2-1 Landmark victory over Juniata on Saturday. Dennis and the Cardinals defense held Juniata to just seven shots.
