Douglas earns NAC Player of the Week

Player -of -the -Week -Mar -18

The North Atlantic Conference (NAC) released its weekly awards for women's lacrosse Monday and named Green Mountain College junior midfielder Johanna Douglas (Essex, Conn.) as this week's Player of the Week for her performance over the course of two games this past week.

In the two games, Douglas scored all eight of the Eagles' goals while shooting 44.4 percent. Her uncanny ability to gain possession led to 23 draw controls over the two games. As a consequence, she gave GMC a quick lead in both contests by scoring off the opening draw. Douglas also added eight ground balls and caused three turnovers to cap her week.

This week's Player of the Week honor is the third for Douglas who earned the distinction twice during 2011, a year in which she captured both the NAC Freshman of the Year and NAC Player of the Year honors.
