Transylvania junior defender Harper Zeitz (Louisville, Ky. / Eastern) has been named the Heartland Collegiate Lacrosse Conference Player of the Week on defense.
Zeitz led the Pioneers to their second shutout of the season this past week as they went 2-0 against HCLC opposition. The Pioneers won their two matches by a combined score of 45-4. Zeitz tallied four ground balls for the week with a team-high 20 draw controls and five caused turnovers over the two games.
Transy’s goalkeeper did not face a shot on Saturday, due to the junior’s defensive activity, as the Pioneers forced Franklin into a 1-for-16 clearance percentage and 20 turnovers in the matchup.
The Transylvania Pioneers (10-4, 3-0 HCLC) will travel to Thomas More on Saturday at noon.
