BREVARD, N.C. – Brevard College Women's Lacrosse freshman Katherine Collins has been selected as the USA South Women's Lacrosse Defensive Player of the Week after helping the Tornados to an undefeated 2-0 weekend on the road at USA South competition.
The Marietta, Georgia freshman goalkeeper collected two wins over USA South opposition last week by collecting 16 saves and eight ground balls. In a 10-8 win over LaGrange, Collins totaled seven saves and one ground ball. In a 7-6 victory over Huntingdon, Collins stopped nine shots and grabbed seven ground balls.
The distinction for Collins marks the 16th USA South weekly honor garnered by a Brevard College student-athlete this academic year, and the second BC Women's Lacrosse student-athlete selected for an award as teammate Hannah Scharf garnered Rookie of the Week honors earlier in the season.
