Stewart Named League's Midfielder of the Week
Samantha Stewart of the Army West Point Women's Lacrosse Team collected Patriot League Midfielder of the Week honors for the second consecutive week.
The midfielder was a key contributor in the Black Knights' 16-14 league win over Lafayette on Saturday, helping the Cadets extend their winning streak to three games. Against the Leopards, Stewart tied her career-high with six points after tallying three goals and a trio of assists. She added three ground balls and a pair of draw controls to her stat line.
Stewart recorded her sixth hat trick of the season and moved up in the program's all-time ranks. The New Canaan, Conn., native climbed to third in all-time assists and second in ground balls.
Stewart and the Black Knights will look to stay hot when they trek to Annapolis, Md., on Saturday for a service-academy rivalry matchup with No. 14 Navy slated for 1 p.m. on CBS Sports Network.
