HIGH POINT, N.C. – Converse College attack Brittni Jones has been named the Conference Carolinas Women's Lacrosse Player of the Week for games played from Apr. 16-22, the Conference announced today.
Jones, a senior from Lees Summit, Mo., accounted for 18 points (17g, 1a), eight ground balls, eight draw controls and three caused turnovers for the Valkyries last week and led them to a 2-0 record. In a 20-6 win over Southern Wesleyan, she posted seven goals with five draw controls, three ground balls and two caused turnovers. Jones best outing came in a tightly contested game against Barton, as she netted 10 goals and an assist with five ground balls and three draws.
