Sophomore midfielder Jalina Rodriguez earned SAA Women's Lacrosse Defensive Player of the Week honors from the league office Monday, marking her first career SAA weekly award.
Rodriguez led Oglethorpe to a 14-11 win over Truett McConnell. The Stormy Petrel midfielder finished with five ground balls and six caused turnovers. She also totaled two goals on four shots. She currently holds the early SAA lead in caused turnovers with those six, while also placing herself in the top three in ground balls.
She and the rest of the Petrels will take on Sewanee in their SAA opener Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m. Eastern.
