GREENSBORO, N.C. - Junior Blair Weymouth has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Women’s Lacrosse Player of the Week for the period ending on Sunday, March 16. Weymouth, who participated in only one of the second-ranked Cavaliers’ two games last week, led Virginia to a 16-5 league victory over seventh-ranked North Carolina.

The All-American helped the Cavaliers put together their best outing this season by using a balanced scoring attack and strong defense Sunday at Klckner Stadium in front of 952 fans. The win marks the seventh straight home win for Virginia and improves the squad to 6-1 on the season and 2-1 in ACC contests.

Weymouth tallied four goals and three assists en route to a season-high point total (23) as a team against UNC. The goals, assists and points were all season-highs for Weymouth. She also had one ground ball in the contest.

The honor marks the first ACC Player of the Week honor for Weymouth, and is the first for Virginia this season.

The Cavaliers will take a break from midweek games this week, before traveling to fourth-ranked Princeton for a 1 p.m. contest on Saturday, March 22.
