Transylvania junior midfielder Kris Stone (Louisville, Ky. / Male) has been named the Heartland Collegiate Lacrosse Conference Player of the Week on defense.
Stone set a new Transylvania program record with 17 ground balls in a 26-0 victory over HCLC opponent Earlham last Wednesday. The junior’s 17 ground balls eclipsed the old single-game by three as he led the Pioneers to their first shutout in nearly a year and the first of this season.
Stone was also 30-for-43 on face-offs as he aided the Pioneers in dominating possession. For the week, Stone finished with 19 ground balls as the Pioneers outscored HCLC opponents 51-3 and stayed undefeated in conference play at 7-0.
The Transylvania Pioneers (11-4, 7-0 HCLC) will travel to Hanover on Saturday, April 27.
