Navy's Blandon Garners Patriot League Goalkeeper of the Week
Feb. 27, 2008
ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- Navy women's lacrosse goalkeeper Natalie Blandon garnered Patriot League Goalkeeper of the Week honors after leading Navy to a 21-10 victory over Longwood on Saturday in the inaugural game for the Navy women's lacrosse program. It was the first weekly installment for the Patriot League awards.
Blandon, a senior from Rockville, Md., stopped nine shots while allowing 10 goals in Navy's convincing win over Longwood. She allowed just two goals, while making six saves in the second half, in which Navy outscored the Lancers, 8-2. She also scooped up three ground balls in the contest.
Blandon's .474 save percentage is currently third in the Patriot League and her 10.00 GAA is second in the conference.
In addition, sophomore midfielder Erin Rawlick (Forest Hill, Md.) was named to the Patriot League Weekly Honor Roll after scoring seven points (5 g, 2 a) in Navy's win over Longwood. Rawlick leads the league in points per game (7.00) and goals per game (5.00).
Navy will be in action next on Saturday, March 1, when it hosts Niagara at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, beginning at noon. Admission is free for all Navy women's lacrosse home games.
