For the second straight week, two members of the University of Scranton field hockey team swept the Landmark Conference Athlete of the Week awards, as senior Meredith Campbell (Media, Pa./Archbishop Carroll) was named the Offensive Athlete of the Week and freshman Jenna Cyr (Coopersburg, Pa./Southern Lehigh) nabbed the Defensive Athlete of the Week honor.
For Campbell, this marks the second consecutive week she has been named the Landmark Conference's Offensive Athlete of the Week for field hockey, while Cyr earns the Defensive Athlete of the Week award for the second time on the 2017 season. She previously earned the honor back on September 5th.
Campbell posted a historic week for the Royals in a pair of victories for Scranton over Wilkes (5-3) on Wednesday and Elizabethtown (1-0) on Saturday. Scranton is now 10-0 on the year and 2-0 in the Landmark, as the Royals are off to their best start in program history.
First, on Wednesday against Wilkes, Campbell scored all five goals for the Royals, breaking the program record for most goals in a match. Then on Saturday against E-Town, she scored the eventual game-winner in the first half. For the year, Campbell has scored 17 goals, which is already the fifth highest goal total for a season in program history.
Cyr, meanwhile, posted the shutout victory in between the pipes for Scranton on Saturday against Elizabethtown. In all, Cyr made six saves on the day, four of which came in the final 10 minutes of regulation against a relentless E-Town attack to preserve the shutout.
For the year, Cyr has made 22 saves and posted a goals-against average of 0.92 in eight starts. She's also had two shutout victories for the season, as well.
The University of Scranton field hockey team returns to action on Tuesday, hosting Albright in a non-conference contest at Fitzpatrick Field. Action gets underway at 7 p.m.
