Players of the Week

The NCAA.com Division I Men’s Lacrosse Players of the Week are Holy Cross’ Clay Haarmann and Denver’s Ryan LaPlante Sean Young for games played Feb. 17 through Feb. 24.

Offensive Player of the Week

Clay Haarmann, College of the Holy Cross
Senior | Attack | 6-0 | 175 | Mendham, N.J.

Clay Haarmaan recorded his ninth career hat trick, but it was his fourth goal against then-No. 8 Loyola that proved to be the game-winner in the Crusaders’ 13-12 win Saturday. It was Holy Cross’ first win versus a ranked opponent and was Loyola’s first loss in the Patriot League, having joined the conference last year.

The victory pushed Holy Cross (2-0) into this week’s Inside Lacrosse poll at No. 19. The Crusaders face Navy (1-2) and Delaware (2-2) this week.

Against Furman, LaPlante set a career high with 19 saves, including 12 in the first half, for the second highest single-game total in Denver history.
