NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – George Washington senior goalkeeper Jess Hicks and freshman midfielder Olivia Boudreau were named the Atlantic 10 Lacrosse Defensive Player of the Week and Rookie of the Week, respectively, the league announced on Tuesday.
While Hicks was named A-10 Defensive Player of the Week in March 2012, the Rookie of the Week nod marks the first of Boudreau’s career, as the pair helped GW to a perfect 2-0 week at home with wins over George Mason (10-6) and Bucknell (11-9).
Between the two contests, Hicks tallied 15 saves. She owned a 7.50 goals against average while posting a .500 save percentage in 120 minutes of work. In the Colonials’ victory over the Patriots on Wednesday, Hicks set aside six shots and picked up one ground ball. On Sunday against the Bison she made nine stops between the pipes – including a key save during one-on-one situation with a Bucknell attacker to preserve a two-goal lead in the second half – and picked up two ground balls.
On the year Hicks has made 26 saves and owns a 9.99 goals against average. She also ranks seventh in the A-10 with 5.20 saves per game.
Boudreau helped GW to an undefeated week of action on the strength of six goals on 10 shots, one assist, four ground balls and three draw controls, in addition to converting two free position goals.
Against George Mason, Boudreau erupted with four goals on six shots taken, highlighted by the first of her collegiate career, and picked up four ground balls while also winning a draw control. In the Colonials’ win over the Bison, the North Andover, Mass. product chipped in two goals on four shots, dished out an assist and won two draw controls.
With six goals and two assists thus far on the season, Boudreau ranks fifth on the team with eight points. She owns a .650 shots on goal percentage, has won a total of five draw controls and has caused six turnovers.
