Gettysburg's Scanlan Gets Centennial Kudo

from press release

– Senior Anna Scanlan (Lutherville, Md./Roland Park Country School) was tabbed the Centennial Conference Women's Lacrosse Defensive Player of the Week according to an announcement made by the league office on Monday, April 26.

Scanlan earned her first selection as the conference's top weekly player after helping Gettysburg College cap a perfect regular season in the Centennial Conference, including defeating archrival and then-No. 4 Franklin & Marshall College on April 21. Scanlan led a defensive effort that held the Diplomats to their lowest goal total in nearly two years, totaling four ground balls and four caused turnovers.

In the season finale at Ursinus College on April 24, Scanlan chipped in with two ground balls, one draw control, and one caused turnover as the Bullets capped a perfect conference season with a 16-6 decision.

Scanlan is in the midst of her finest season with the Orange and Blue. She has started all 16 contests she has played and ranks third on the team with 33 ground balls and is tied for fifth with 14 caused turnovers. It was the fifth weekly conference accolade bestowed upon a Bullet this spring, and third defensive award.

Gettysburg (15-2, 9-0 CC), ranked fifth in the latest Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) national poll, will host the 2010 CC Tournament at Clark Field on May 1-2. The Bullets will play the winner of Wednesday's first round game between Dickinson College and Haverford College on Saturday at 1 p.m. followed by Franklin & Marshall and Ursinus in the second semifinal. Sunday's championship is slated for a 2 p.m. start.
