Wood Is NESCAC Player of the Week

May 8, 2006

Middlebury College men's lacrosse player Gabe Wood (Tacoma, Wash.) has been named the NESCAC Player of the Week. Wood had another stellar week on defense for Middlebury, leading the Panthers to their sixth straight NESCAC Championship. The senior had a dozen ground balls in two games, while successfully clearing the ball on several occasions for Middlebury. No clear was bigger than the final one on Sunday, as he went coast-to-coast, scoring the man-down game-winning goal as time expired to lift the Panthers to a 10-9 win over Wesleyan in the title game.
