ANNAPOLIS, Md. - The No. 18/12 Navy women's lacrosse team (11-1) will play a non-conference game at Longwood (7-4) at the Athletics Complex on Tuesday at 3:00 PM. Live statistics will be available. Navy will be seeking a sixth-straight win.
Additionally, senior Jasmine DePompeo (Sayville, N.Y.) has been named the Patriot League Offensive Player of the Week for the fourth straight week and sophomore sophomore Loren Generi (Bayport, N.Y.) has been named the Patriot League Midfield Player of the Week.
Navy capped off a busy stretch of seven games in 18 days by defeating UC Davis, 19-11, last Wednesday. With DePompeo and Generi leading the way, Navy's offense showed its firepower by totaling its highest goal output since its season opener on February 10.
DePompeo scored a career-high 10 points on three goals and seven assists and Generi tied Navy single-game records with eight goals and 11 draw controls, both personal bests. Junior Aimee Gennaro (Havertown, Pa.) also chipped in with six points (5 g, 1 a).
With her career-best seven assists against the Aggies, DePompeo became the Patriot League's career assists leader with 136. She also moved into seventh place on the NCAA's all-time list. DePompeo is the NCAA's active leader in career points (287) and assists (136). DePompeo needs eight points to become Navy's all-time leader. DePompeo is one of three Patriot League players to earn four offensive weekly honors in a row.
Generi surpassed the 100-point plateau in her career with her eight-goal performance against UC Davis and became the second-fasted Mid to hit the century mark, needing just 33 games. Generi has 34 goals, eight assists and a team-best 56 draw controls.
DePompeo leads the team, the Patriot League and the country with 6.50 points per game. DePompeo has a total of 78 points (38 g, 40 a) in 12 games. Gennaro is fourth in the league in scoring (3.67) and Generi is fifth (3.50). Goalie Annie Foky (Charlottesville, Va.) leads the league in goals-against average (7.18) and is second in save percentage (.459).
As a team, Navy leads the Patriot League in scoring offense (14.17) and goals-against average (7.22).
The Mids moved up to a program-best ranking of No. 12 in this week's deBeer Media Poll. Head coach Cindy Timchal has had Navy ranked in the deBeer Media Poll all season, beginning at No. 20 in week one. Timchal is now 87-23 in six seasons in Annapolis and 423-109 overall.
Navy is 4-1 all-time against Longwood and has won three straight. Navy defeated the Lancers, 20-4, in 2012 in Annapolis. Nine different players scored for Navy and the Mids outscored the Lancers, 12-1, in the second half.
Longwood enters Tuesday's game at 7-4 and is 2-2 in the Big South. The Lancers are coming off a 12-10 win over William & Mary on Saturday. Jamie Brentlinger led the team with five goals and an assist against William & Mary and goalie Christian Acker made 10 saves.
Lauren Prasnicki leads the team with 48 points on 16 goals and 32 assists. Brentlinger is second with 40 points (29 g, 11 a) and Acker is 6-4 with a 12.72 goals-against average.
Navy will return to Patriot League play on Saturday at Holy Cross at 12 noon for a rematch of the 2012 title game, which Navy won, 18-11.
