Offensive Player of the Week
Oscar Horwitz, Jr., D, Franklin & Marshall

Horwitz has now scored in four straight matches and leads F&M in both goals (7) and points (15). His most meaningful goal of the week came during the 74th minute against Gettysburg when his header helped level the match late as the Diplomats picked up a key point against a strong Bullets team.
Defensive Player of the Week
Ben Mulford, Fr., GK, Muhlenberg
North Bethesda, Md. | Georgetown Prep
Mulford was spotless in goal in a pair of games, recording back-to-back shutouts. He stopped two shots against Moravian and three against Swarthmore, including a diving save late in the second half that preserved the Mules' first shutout win against the Garnet since 2007. Mulford has not allowed a goal in his last 294 minutes.


Offensive Player of the Week
Breukelen Woodard, Gr., M, Johns Hopkins

Defensive Player of the Week
Katherine Carstensen, Gr., GK, McDaniel
Pearl River, N.Y. | Pearl River
Carstensen posted two clean sheets on the week including a four-save performance at No. 24 Franklin & Marshall. On Saturday she made a pair of key saves against the Red Devils in a 1-0 win, completing a scoreless 180-minute week in net. 


Offensive Player of the Week
Sydney Levins, Jr., OH/RS, Franklin & Marshall
Waxhaw, N.C. | Cuthbertson
Levins hit .325 for the week during a pair of Centennial Conference sweeps against Haverford and Washington College. She recorded 11 points in both matches and added two blocks and one service ace against the Fords, with two more aces against the Shorewomen after nearly identical hitting performances. Levins and the Diplomats have now swept their last six matches, the longest such streak for F&M since the 2013 season.
Defensive Player of the Week

Wilmington, Del. | Conrad Schools of Science
