Madison Cyr Named Epoch/Lacrosse Magazine’s Player Of The Week
On the back half of one of the most successful seasons women’s lacrosse has seen, senior midfielder Madison Cyr was just recently named Epoch/Lacrosse Magazine’s National Player of the Week. Alongside Cyr, freshman Madison Carter picked up her fifth Big Ten Freshman of the Week.
Cyr’s accolade followed her outstanding performance against Northwestern on Saturday. She notched four goals and three assists to lift the Nittany Lions 17-13 over the Wildcats. The seven points matched her career high for points in a game. The three goals placed her eighth in career goals in program history — tied with Michele DeJuliis with 142. Cyr’s current career points total in 179.
Cyr has led the Nittany Lions to an 11-4 overall record and a 3-1 Big Ten record. Its only conference loss is Ohio State. With only one more game left in the regular season, the team looks to claim another Big Ten title.
The team is set to take on Maryland this Thursday. Opening draw is set for 7 p.m. in University Park for the Nittany Lions’ last match of the regular season.
