LakePoint, Ga. - Sarah Elms and Genie Santapio swept the ASUN Conference Women's Lacrosse weekly awards for Jacksonville, as announced by the league office on Tuesday.
Elms garners her second ever ASUN Player of the Week award after a career week for Jacksonville. Last week, she totaled 12 goals and three assists for 15 points in a 2-0 week for the Dolphins. Elms started her weekend with a six goal and three assist performance in a dominating 19-7 win over Mercer. She followed that up with another six goal game in a 23-8 win over Kennesaw State on Sunday. The win helped clinch at least a share of the ASUN title and the one seed in the ASUN Women's Lacrosse Championship.
Jacksonville's Santarpio nabs her first career ASUN weekly award, after helping Jacksonville to a dominant defensive performance this past weekend. On Friday night, Santarpio collected four ground balls and caused three turnovers in a victory over Mercer. The following game she collected another four ground balls and a caused turnover in a win over Kennesaw State. For the weekend, Jacksonville yielded just 15 goals over two games thanks to the defensive effort from Santarpio.
