Taylor Donohue Named A-10 Women's Lacrosse Player of the Week
Feb. 16, 2009
PHILADELPHIA, PA - George Washington women's lacrosse junior Taylor Donohue earned her first Atlantic 10 Player of the Week award Monday following her near record-setting performance in Sunday's season opener against Ohio State.
Donohue set a career-high and matched the second-most goals in a game in GW program history with six in the Colonials' 14-9 loss to the Buckeyes at Mount Vernon Field Sunday. Donohue scored all three first-half goals for GW to cut Ohio State's margin to 5-3 at halftime and added three more tallies over the final nine minutes.
Donohue, who earned an A-10 Rookie of the Week award en route to All-Rookie Team and A-10 All-Championship Team honors in 2007, now ranks 10th all-time at GW with 50 goals in 32 career games.
GW (0-1) returns to action Saturday at 1:00 pm at No. 8 Georgetown in the Hoyas' season-opener at Multi-Sport Field.
