(Carlisle, Pa.) – Dickinson junior Heather Meeder (Baltimore, Md./Notre Dame Prep) was named the Centennial Conference Field Hockey Defensive Player of the Week while sophomore Marie Laverdiere (Springfield, Va./West Springfield) was named the Offensive Player of the Week.
Laverdiere scored a pair of goals in a 2-0 week that lifted the Red Devils to the Conference playoffs. She tallied once in the 3-0 win at McDaniel and tallied the game-winner with just over a minute left to down Gettysburg, 2-1.
Meeder turned aside 14 of 15 shots on cage as the Red Devils won twice to advance to the Conference playoffs. She made four saves in a 3-0 shutout at McDaniel and backstopped 10 shots in a 2-1 come-from-behind win against Gettysburg. For the week, Meeder had a 93.3 save percentage and a 0.50 goals-against average.
The Red Devils earned the number-five seed in the conference playoffs and will travel to Muhlenberg College on Wednesday night for a 7:00 pm start.
