PHILADELPHIA - The Ivy League has announced its players of the week for men’s lacrosse, and Penn ended the season in style by grabbing not one but two honorees. Even more impressive, they both received player of the week or shared it, if you will.
Seniors Craig Andrzejewski (Parkton, Md.) and Greg Murray (Thornton, Pa.) were the Quakers’ first Ivy honorees this season. They received the honor for their efforts in Penn’s 11-10 win over Army on Saturday, which ended the Quakers’ season at 5-8 overall.
Andrzejewski, an attackman, had a spectacular game offensively for the Quakers, scoring three goals and dishing off three assists. The seven-point game was a season-high for the senior, and gave him 141 career points which puts him ninth on the Quakers' all-time list. Andrzejewski also finished his career with 62 career assists, which is ninth all-time at Penn, and 79 goals which is 12th all-time.
Murray, a goalkeeper, closed out his collegiate career in spectacular fashion, coming up with a career-best 17 saves against the Black Knights. Murray began the season as the starter, but was supplanted midway through the year. Last weekend, he got the start on senior day at home, but was forced to come out due to illness and dehydration early in the third quarter. However, on Saturday he again got the start and this time he went the distance.
