AU’s Adams earns weekly women’s lacrosse honors from Empire 8

ALFRED, NY — Michelle Adams (Horseheads, NY/Horseheads), a sophomore attacker on the Alfred University women’s lacrosse team, has been named Player of the Week by the Empire 8 Conference.

Adams was honored for her play in two home games last week: a 13-8 win over Hartwick and a 13-4 loss to Utica. She had eight goals, an assist and three groundballs in the win over Hartwick, which snapped the Saxons’ 24-game losing streak in Empire 8 Conference play dating back to April 2004. She added a pair of goals and a groundball in the loss to Utica.

Adams leads AU with 33 goals, which ranks sixth in the Empire 8. Her goals per game average of 4.12 leads the conference and her 4.50 points per game ranks fourth.

Alfred (4-4, 1-4 Empire 8) is in action next on Saturday, April 18, at 4 p.m. at Elmira College.
