After an­other un­de­feated week­end, East Carolina women’s lacrosse picked up two Amer­i­can Ath­letic Con­fer­ence weekly awards.

The Pi­rates (4-1) had goalie Christina White earn the Amer­i­can’s de­fen­sive player of the week honor for the sec­ond time this sea­son. Also, Cam­ryn Pen­ny­packer was named mid­fielder of the week for the first time. The pair helped ECU go 2-0 on the road, beat­ing Ge­orge Wash­ing­ton 10-9 fol­lowed by top­ping Delaware State 16-2.

ECU is back in ac­tion Sun­day with a home match ver­sus Saint Fran­cis.

White, who ranks first in the con­fer­ence in saves per game, fin­ished the week­end with 10 saves. None was big­ger than her last in the Ge­orge Wash­ing­ton win on a free po­si­tion at­tempt with 1:03 re­main­ing to pre­serve the 10-9 lead.

“Christina has been a rock be­tween the pipes for us this sea­son and this past week­end was no dif­fer­ent,” Pi­rate coach Amanda Barnes Moore said in a re­lease. “She, along with our de­fen­sive unit, gave us the stops we needed to mount a come­back win and hold on to it.”

Pen­ny­packer, a fresh­man from Mul­lica, N.J., has made an in­stant im­pact and she had four points against Ge­orge Wash­ing­ton, in­clud­ing scor­ing the game-win­ning goal.

Also this week in the AAC, East Carolina base­ball swept the league weekly awards for the first time. Jake Ag­nos was named pitcher of the week, fol­low­ing his 11 strike­outs in a win against Mon­mouth last Satur­day, and steady two-way stand­out Alec Burleson earned player of the week.
