The Keuka College women’s lacrosse team features six players with ties to the Finger Lakes. The hearty half-dozen have already played a big role for the Wolfpack this season.
Two former Midlakes standouts swept the most recent North Eastern Athletic Conference honor roll. Syndey Forshay was named Offensive Player of the Week, while Samantha Peacock earned Defensive Player of the Week accolades.
Forshay enjoyed a dominant stretch, starting with a game-high five goals in a loss to Alfred. She erupted for a career-high seven goals and two assists vs. Hilbert. The junior also eclipsed the 100-point mark in the 20-2 win.
Forshay is second in the NEAC in goals (18) and points (21).
Peacock is part of a defense that leads the NEAC in caused turnovers. The junior picked up five ground balls and created three turnovers against Alfred. She tied her career high with five caused turnovers and added four ground balls against Hilbert.
For the season, Peacock leads the conference with 13 caused turnovers and is second with 20 ground balls.
The duo is getting plenty of help.
Kendall Neuberger (Penn Yan) has burst onto the scene as a freshman with 13 goals, fifth most in the NEAC. She is tied with Peacock at 20 ground balls.
Ashley Appell (Newark) has produced four goals and two assists in five games.
Morgan Bruno (Mynderse) has flipped those numbers with a pair of goals and four assists.
Danielle Chidsey (Penn Yan) has started four of five games on defense with four ground balls and two caused turnovers.
Treat of a national honor
Colby Treat (Penn Yan) put together a recent spell for the Post (Conn.) University men’s lacrosse team earlier this month that earned him the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association Division II Offensive Player of the Week.
Treat, a senior, sparked a 17-2 rout of American International with three goals and three assists. He followed that with a four-goal performance against Franklin Pierce. He netted the game-winner and added two assists in the 15-11 victory. Treat added an assist in Post’s 12-8 loss to St. Michael’s Wednesday.
He leads the Eagles with 25 points on 11 goals and 14 assists.
Wright on target
Tim Wright (Waterloo) is making the most of his shooting opportunities for the SUNY Geneseo men’s lacrosse team. Wright has put 15 of his 20 shots on goal so far, accumulating eight goals and eight assists. He is tied for the team lead with 16 points.
