DOUGHERTY NAMED DIVISION III LACROSSE NATIONAL PLAYER OF THE WEEK

LEXINGTON, Va. -- Senior attackman Colin Dougherty (Timonium, Md./Loyola) has been named the Division III Lacrosse National Player of the Week by Inside Lacrosse.com.

Dougherty, a preseason Second Team All-America selection by both Faceoff '2000 Men's College Lacrosse Magazine and College Lacrosse USA, tallied three goals and three assists in the Generals' 10-8 win over sixth-ranked Washington College on Saturday afternoon.

Dougherty claims seven goals and six assists through W&L's first three games, all wins. His career scoring total now stands at 174 points, just 61 shy of the W&L career record.

Washington and Lee is ranked second in the latest USILA Division III Men's Lacrosse poll which was released Monday morning. The Generals trail only defending national champion Salisbury State.

Dougherty and W&L will be tested again in their next contest, a match-up with fourth-ranked Gettysburg College on Sunday afternoon in Lexington. Faceoff is set for 1:00 pm.
