Marquette Lacrosse Makes An Impact In Their First Week In The Big East

One week, three weekly award honorees!

Both of Marquette's lacrosse teams are in their sophomore seasons, and both will assuredly experience some growing pains as the season progresses. But that doesn't mean there can't be some high notes along the way for both squads. Amongst those high notes are weekly awards from the Big East.

The Big East handed out the first weekly awards for men's and women's lacrosse, and included were three MU lacrosse players. Tyler Melnyk and Liam Byrnes made the men's list, while Amanda Bochniak made the women's honor roll.

Melnyk had a natural hat trick against Hofstra on Saturday to propel Marquette from a 3-3 tie to a 6-3 lead on the way to their 11-9 victory. Byrnes was crucial on defense in that game, snaring five ground balls and forcing more than a quarter of the Pride's turnovers in the game. Byrnes also contributed to the nearly 30 minute Hofstra scoring drought that helped MU come away with the win.

Bochniak made her collegiate debut on Saturday against Johns Hopkins, just nine miles away from where she went to high school. Less than two minutes into the game, Bochniak broke the ice on the game, Marquette's scoring for the season, and her own collegiate tally when she popped a goal past Blue Jays goalie KC Emerson.

Congratulations to all three athletes!
