Watts Named A-Sun Defensive Player of the Week
Junior midfielder picks up the 10th honor for Jacksonville this season
MACON, Ga. – The Atlantic Sun Conference named Jacksonville’s Chelsea Watts (West Long Branch, N.J.) as the women’s lacrosse Defensive Player of the Week on Monday.
Watts earns her first weekly honor this season and the 10th for Jacksonville by leading the Dolphins to an undefeated A-Sun record with a 25-5 win over Howard on Sunday. She also had a strong performance against No. 12/14 Navy on Friday last week.
For the two games, Watts totaled four ground balls, seven draw controls and caused three turnovers.
Jacksonville returns to action on Friday when the Dolphins play host to the A-Sun Tournament at Southern Oak Stadium.
