Carter Is Player Of The Week

ROSEMONT, Ill. – Sophomore Madison Carter (Davidsonville, Md.) has been named the Big Ten Offensive Player of the week as announced by the league office earlier Tuesday afternoon.
Carter earns her fourth Offensive Player of the Week honor after tying a career-high with six goals against No. 1 Maryland last Thursday evening. The sophomore currently leads the Big Ten with 58 goals to rank fourth in the nation just five behind current leader Michaela Michael of USC.
Carter also secured nine draw controls against the Terps, which was just one shy of her career-high. The sophomore currently has 95 draws on the season while averaging 5.94 per contest, both marks rank second in the Big Ten and tie for tenth in the nation.
The Davidsonville, Md. Native has now recorded three games this season with six goals and has double-digit goals in all but one contest on the year while riding a 24-game goal streak dating back to last season. Carter has only been held without a goal once in her 37 games played during her career.
Carter was also recognized as the Inside Lacrosse Alpha Lacrosse Player of the Week as she received 46 percent of an online fan vote to take home the weekly national honor.
The 14 goals scored by the Nittany Lions during the 16-14 setback to the top-ranked Terrapins were the most allowed by the nation’s 15th ranked defense who has only allowed an average of 9.00 goals per contest this season to lead the Big Ten.
Penn State returns to action on Sunday as they travel to Ann Arbor to battle the Michigan Wolverines at 11 a.m. to close out the regular season.
