(Carlisle, Pa.) – Dickinson junior Heather Meeder (Baltimore, Md./Notre Dame Prep) was named the Centennial Conference Field Hockey Defensive Player of the Week while sophomore Marie Laverdiere (Springfield, Va./West Springfield) was named the Offensive Player of the Week.
Meeder turned aside 14 of 15 shots on cage as the Red Devils won twice to advance to the Conference playoffs. She made four saves in a 3-0 shutout at McDaniel and backstopped 10 shots in a 2-1 come-from-behind win against Gettysburg. For the week, Meeder had a 93.3 save percentage and a 0.50 goals-against average.
Laverdiere scored a pair of goals in a 2-0 week that lifted the Red Devils to the Conference playoffs. She tallied once in the 3-0 win at McDaniel and tallied the game-winner with just over a minute left to down Gettysburg, 2-1.
The Red Devils earned the number-five seed in the conference playoffs and will travel to Muhlenberg College on Wednesday night for a 7:00 pm start.
