IWLCA Players of the Week – February 14, 2023


The IWLCA has chosen four student-athletes for the IWLCA Player of the Week awards for the week ending February 12, 2023. This weekly award will recognize the best offensive and defensive performances by players in Division I, II, III, and the NAIA during the regular season. Due to staggered competition start dates, Division I and Division II players have been recognized this week, and players in all three NCAA Divisions and the NAIA will be recognized weekly starting February 21.

Division I

Offensive Player of the Week

Meaghan Tyrrell Syracuse University 

Tyrrell played a role in eight of No. 4 Syracuse's 16 goals in its season-opening win over No. 4 Northwestern. She recorded a game-high eight points on two goals and a career-best six assists. After the Wildcats tied the score at 14-14, Tyrrell assisted on a goal and then scored her second of the day to put the game out of reach.

Defensive Player of the Week

Meghan Ball – Rutgers University

Ball helped No. 8 Rutgers to a 9-7 comeback victory over No. 19 Jacksonville. She tallied four caused turnovers and anchored a defense that has allowed seven or fewer goals in three wins against ranked opponents dating back to last season. She currently sits at 98 career caused turnovers.

Division II

Gastonguay recorded a career-high 10 points in No. 10 Rollins' 13-8 win over Limestone. Her four goal, six assist performance led the way for the Tars offense, while also contributing six ground balls and three caused turnovers in the fight.
