Kate Martino Named GoHolyCross.com Crusader Of The Week

WORCESTER, Mass. - Sophomore Kate Martino (Summit, N.J.) has been named the GoHolyCross.com Crusader of the Week, for competition from April 14-20. Martino helped lead the Holy Cross women's lacrosse team to a 9-6 victory at Lehigh in its only game last week, to wrap up the No. 4 seed in the upcoming Patriot League Tournament.

During Saturday's win over the Mountain Hawks, Martino led the team in scoring with four points on three goals and one assist. Her first goal of the day tied the score at 3-3 in the first half, then she netted back-to-back goals midway through the second half to break a 5-5 tie and give the Crusaders the lead for good.

On the season, Martino leads the team in scoring with 34 points on 24 goals and 10 assists. She has also recorded a team-high 41 draw controls this year, to go along with 19 ground balls and 13 caused turnovers.

The Crusaders (6-11 overall, 4-4 Patriot League) return to action on Tuesday, April 22, when they play host to Colgate in the quarterfinals of the Patriot League Tournament at 5:00 p.m.
