BREVARD, N.C. – Freshman goalkeeper Devin McCarragher was selected as the USA South Men's Lacrosse Rookie of the Week after helping Brevard College Men's Lacrosse go undefeated last week.
McCarragher (2-0) did a tremendous job in his first two career starts in goal filling in for senior Peyton Mooney, aiding the Tornados in victories against NCAA DII Emmanuel College and over USA South foe Greensboro College.
The freshman goalkeeper from Sharpsburg, Georgia earned two wins in a 2-0 week for the Tornados. Playing all 120 minutes last week, McCarragher totaled 22 saves and collected six ground balls. In his first career victory, a 20-12 win over Emmanuel, McCarragher stopped 13 shots and grabbed one ground ball. In a 12-10 victory over USA South foe Greensboro, McCarragher made nine saves with five ground balls.
The award marks Brevard College Men's Lacrosse's second Athlete of the Week selectee, as Jackson McKaig was named USA South Men's Lacrosse Player of the Week last week.
The distinction for McCarragher marks the 20th USA South weekly honor garnered by a Brevard College student-athlete this academic year.
