ATLANTA, Ga. - Haley Alexander of Coastal Carolina and Megan Prescott of Jacksonville pick up this week's ASUN Women's Lacrosse Weekly honors, as announced by the league office on Tuesday.  

Alexander stuffed the stat sheet last week, as she helped Coastal to two victories. She totaled 13 points on 11 goals and two assists, while she picked up four ground balls and won 11 draw controls on the defensive end. In Coastal's victory against Mercer, Alexander netted six goals and followed that performance up with another five in a conference win against Kennesaw State. Alexander added to her program record for total career points, as she tallied her 200th career point with an assist against Mercer. 

After helping the Dolphins to a huge ASUN win against Liberty, Prescott nab's this week's Defensive Player of the Week honor. Prescott helped shutdown the Liberty attack, as the Dolphins surrendered just six goals in a 19-6 rout. She caused two turnovers and won eight draw controls and added four goals and an assist on offense. With the win vs. Liberty, Jacksonville sits in sole possession of first place in the ASUN and is in position to win their seventh-straight ASUN Regular Season title.
