For Immediate Release · By Nairem Moran · nmoran@smcm.edu

York, Pa. – Senior Haley Sieglein (Baltimore, Md./Friends School) earned her first career Capital Athletic Conference Women's Lacrosse Defensive Player of the Week award Monday afternoon. Sieglein received the honor for the week ending March 26 as announced by Assistant CAC Commissioner Tim Mowrer.

Sieglein is the second Seahawk to be honored as the CAC Defensive Player of the Week as fellow classmate Mackenzie Rayburn garnered the award on February 27. She secured this week's accolades after tallying seven caused turnovers and seven ground balls in a 2-1 week for the St. Mary's College of Maryland women's lacrosse team (6-5, 2-0 CAC).

The 5-5 defender began the week with two ground balls and two caused turnovers at Washington College. She then ended the week with career-bests of five caused turnovers and four ground balls plus her fourth career goal in a 17-0 shutout of Wesley College.

Sieglein is currently tied for ninth in the conference with 11 caused turnovers.

St. Mary's will be back in action on Wednesday, March 29 as the Seahawks travel to No. 7 York College of Pennsylvania (5-2, 1-0 CAC) for a conference tilt at 4:00 p.m.
