Madison Carter Honors

Feb. 23, 2016
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Madison Carter (Davidsonville, Md.) was named Big Ten Co-Offensive Player and Freshman of the Week on Tuesday afternoon by the conference office. The awards are the first of Carter’s collegiate career.
Carter was Penn State's best all-around player in Saturday's 19-5 win over Duquesne. Carter scored a career-high four goals and dished an assist in the game. She connected on four of six shots, while collecting a team-high three ground balls and four draw controls. She was also one of three Lions to force two caused turnovers in the game.
Carter is the first Nittany Lion to nab a freshman of the week award and the first Penn State athlete to capture offensive player of the week honors this season. She is the second Lion to earn a weekly laurel, joining teammate Emi Smith (Denver, Colo.), who was named defensive player of the week on Feb. 16.
Currently, Carter leads the team in draw controls (7), ranks tied-second in goals (5) and caused turnovers (3) and third in points (6).

The No. 6 Nittany Lions return to action on Saturday for a road trip to No. 10 Virginia. Game time at Klockner Stadium is set for Noon.
