Transylvania junior defender Harper Zeitz (Louisville, Ky. / Eastern) has been named the Heartland Collegiate Lacrosse Conference Player of the Week on defense.
Zeitz helped the Pioneers hold Aurora to just one goal in an 18-1 victory for Transylvania on Wednesday. The junior forced a game-high six caused turnovers and also grabbed six ground balls. Zeitz led a defensive unit which allowed just four shots on goal all day and forced Aurora into 20 failed clears as well as 34 turnovers.
In Sunday’s 25-9 win against Hendrix, Zeitz picked up three ground balls and led the Pioneers defensive unit into limiting Hendrix to one goal in the final half of play, and no goals for the final 25 minutes. The junior’s back line hindered Hendrix into a 10-for-18 clearance rate on Sunday and 23 turnovers.
The Transylvania Pioneers (5-1, 0-0 HCLC) will travel to Roanoke on Tuesday at 7 p.m. and will travel to Bridgewater (Va.) on Thursday at 4 p.m.
