Joyal is this week's ASUN Lacrosse Co-Player of the Week.

Jenna Joyal of the Liberty women's lacrosse team has been named the ASUN Lacrosse Co-Player of the Week.

Joyal garners ASUN weekly honors for the first time in her career. The junior attacker is being named a conference player of the week for the second time in her career. Joyal also garnered Big South Offensive Player of the Week distinction on Feb. 27, 2018.  She shares player of the week recognition with Coastal Carolina's Haley Alexander.

Joyal tallied six goals, four assists, 10 points, 11 shots (eight on goal) and four ground balls in a pair of Liberty wins, last weekend. On Friday at home against Old Dominion, Joyal scored three goals to go along with an assist.

The New Fairfield, Conn. native had a career-high six points in Sunday's 21-6 win against Stetson at home, scoring three more goals for her fourth hat trick of the season. She also matched a career best with three assists and tied a career high with four ground balls.

In 11 games this season, all starts, Joyal is third on the team in goals (20) and points (25), tied for second in free-position goals (4) and is tied for fourth in assists (5).

Liberty has now claimed eight of the 15 ASUN weekly awards handed out through the first seven weeks of the season, including four player of the week honors and four defensive player of the week honors.

Joyal and the Lady Flames are off to a program-best 9-2 start to the season and a 2-0 mark in the ASUN Conference. They will be back in action at Coastal Carolina (5-2), Sunday at noon at Brooks Stadium in Conway, S.C.
