Liberty attacker Kristin Crowley has been named the National Lacrosse Conference (NLC) Player of the Week for games played March 22-28, as announced today by the conference.

Crowley (So., Colorado Springs, Colo.) finished last week's hectic four-game slate with 10 goals, one assist, two ground balls, seven draw controls and one caused turnover. Liberty's leading scorer also concluded the week with a .455 shot percentage (10-of-17) and a shot-on-goal percentage of .773 (10-of-22).

The bulk of the attacker's scoring occurred in Liberty's two most recent contests. Crowley turned in an impressive performance against Central Connecticut State this past Friday, netting five of the Lady Flames' nine goals. On Sunday, Crowley followed up her efforts with four goals against Iona. Through Liberty's first nine games, the attacker leads the Lady Flames in goals (19), assists (3), free position goals (7) and draw controls (18).

The Lady Flames return to action in the Motor City on April 10 against Detroit-Mercy, in the first of three NLC contests to round out the regular season. The opening draw against the Titans is slated for 3 p.m.
