ROCK HILL, S.C. (TheSAC.com) – Lenoir-Rhyne attack Joe Buduo has been named the South Atlantic Conference AstroTurf Men's Lacrosse Offensive Player of the Week, and Coker goalie Chris Hagy has been named the South Atlantic Conference AstroTurf Men's Lacrosse Defensive Player of the Week for games played March 19-25, the League announced today.
Buduo, a junior from Shrewsbury, Mass., had an outstanding week as he led the No. 3 Bears to a pair of SAC wins over Queens and Newberry. Versus Queens, Buduo broke his own single-game record for goals by scoring eight goals with two assists for 10 points. He added an assist in the Newberry game to give himself 11 points for the week. He now leads the SAC in goals with 42 and is second in the conference in total points with 56.
Hagy, a freshman from Bel Air, Md., was spectacular between the pipes as he led the Cobras to a pair of SAC victories last week over Newberry and Mars Hill. He allowed just nine goals in two games with a 4.65 goals against average and made 18 total saves.
This is the second Player of the Week accolade for Buduo this season, while this marks the first Player of the Week honor for Hagy.
