Junior Midfielder Earns National Award

Junior Midfielder Kelly Taffe

LEXINGTON, Va. -- Washington and Lee junior midfielder Kelly Taffe (Charlottesville, Va./Albemarle) has been named the Warrior/Inside Lacrosse National Division III Women's Player of the Week.

Taffe garnered the award after a week in which she tallied eight goals and one assist in wins over Hollins (18-2) and ninth-ranked Mary Washington (10-9).

Taffe scored five goals and assisted on another against the Eagles, scoring the game-winning goal with nine seconds remaining. Taffe's five goals brought the Generals back from a 7-2 halftime deficit and upped W&L's record to 4-1 on the season.

Continuing her hot play, Taffe led the Generals to a 23-7 win over Lynchburg on Tuesday afternoon, scoring six goals and adding two assists.

On the season, Taffe leads W&L in scoring with 29 points on 21 goals and eight assists. The Generals, ranked 10th in the latest IWLCA Division III poll, are now 5-1 overall, 3-0 in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference. W&L returns to action on Friday as it travels to Goucher for a 4:30 pm contest.
