Anderson earns first CAC Defensive Player of the Week of career

YORK, Pa. – The Capital Athletic Conference released its men's lacrosse weekly awards Monday afternoon, and senior goalkeeper Connor Anderson of the No. 15 Salisbury University men's lacrosse team tabbed the program's first accolade of the season earning Defensive Player of the Week.

Recording two victories in net for the Sea Gulls (4-3, 1-0 CAC) this past week, Anderson turned away 14 shots and only allowed seven goals through both contests. Against Hampden-Sydney College on March 11, the senior tended the net for the full 60 minutes, making seven saves in a 13-4 victory for Salisbury. On the road against Capital Athletic Conference foe St. Mary's College of Maryland on Saturday, he turned away seven shots again through 45 minutes of play in route to a 17-6 victory over the Seahawks.

The accolade is the Edmonton, Alberta native's first of his collegiate career.

The Sea Gulls take the field for their next game on Wednesday, March 18, as they travel to No. 10 Cabrini College for their fourth top-20 matchup of the season. First faceoff is set for 4 p.m., on Dixon Field.
