For the first time in his career, Calvin’s junior attacker Tim Marco has been named the MIAA’s lacrosse player of the week.

Marco earned the honor with a superb week, providing most of the Knights’ offense in two losses. He scored nine goals and had one assist in two games.

In a 17-6 defeat at the hands of Adrian, Marco scored three unassisted goals, and followed that up by scoring six goals on the same number of shots and adding an assist during Calvin’s 17-9 loss to Baldwin-Wallace.

Marco leads the team with 17 goals and six assists in only eight games played this year, while also pacing the team in shots on goal. Chris Griffin is Calvin’s second-leading scorer with 10 goals.

The Knights are still building the program, which is only in its second year, so they sit with a record of 2-7 (0-1 in the MIAA). However, the progress they have made by having a player named MIAA Player of the Week certainly suggests that the team is headed in the right direction.

Calvin will play on Wednesday, April 9 against Albion at Grand Rapids Christian High School, and plays back at Calvin on Saturday, April 12 against Trine. Make sure to head out and support the team.
