Foust & Henry Earn Weekly Big East Awards


Lydia Foust was named Big East Midfielder of the Week. Here's the writeup:

The senior midfielder scored 10 goals and added two assists for 12 points last week as Marquette went 2-0. Foust scored seven goals and had one assist in a 22-16 win at Butler along with three goals and one assist in 12-8 win on the road against Villanova. She ranks 11th in the nation in total goals (54) and 16th in goals per game (3.38). Marquette is now ranked No. 24 in the newest IWLCA Division I Poll, which is the first time the Golden Eagles have been ranked in program history.

Ellie Henry was named Defensive Player of the Week. This is her writeup from the league:

Henry had 19 draw controls, three ground balls and one caused turnover in the Golden Eagles two wins last week. The senior defender’s 15 draw controls at Butler were the second-most in a game in program history. Henry proceeded to add four more draw controls along with three ground balls and one caused turnover in the victory at Villanova. She ranks 23rd in the nation in draw controls per game (6.12).

On top of those two awards, Mary Schumar made the Honor Roll after a 17 point week where she set the Big East record for assists in a game. It's kind of insane that she's not the Offensive Player of the Week as a result of setting a league record, to be honest.

Garcia Named Attacker OTW; Nixon Named DPOTW


Here's what the Big East said about Marquette's Shea Garcia:

In a 1-0 week for Marquette, Garcia totaled five points off four goals and one assist in a 12-9 win against then-No. 24 Connecticut. The Golden Eagles’ win over the Huskies is their second top-25 victory in program history and first of this season. The senior attacker currently ranks second in the BIG EAST in goals per game (3.08) and third in total goals (40).

And here's what they wrote up about goalie Brynna Nixon:

Nixon had a career-high 14 saves in the Golden Eagles win over UConn. The sophomore goalkeeper had a .609 save percentage on 36 shots faced and only allowed nine goals. She also added four ground balls in the win. After last week’s game, Nixon has surpassed the 100-save mark for the season with 112.

Lucas Lawas named Big East Freshman of the Week


That's pretty good stuff for the goalie's first ever career start, even if it was in a loss to #10 Georgetown.
