Blake Hargest (Cockeysville, MD / St. Paul's School for Girls) was named the Rookie of the Week and Kelly Cassels (Downingtown, PA / Great Valley) landed on the site's National Weekly Honor Roll back on March 6. Franklin & Marshall is currently 5-0, and ranked fifth in the nation in the latest Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association poll.
