GREENSBORO, N.C. – Guilford College's Lily Colley collected the Old Dominion Athletic Conference's (ODAC) Women's Lacrosse Player of the Week Awards Monday. The award is selected and presented by the ODAC office.

Colley, a sophomore attacker, led Guilford in a 2-1 week with 14 points on 10 goals and four assists, all team highs. She caused a team-high seven turnovers and picked up seven ground balls, plus four draws.

Colley had four goals, three assists, seven points and four caused turnovers, all game highs, in the Quakers' 15-11 win over league-rival Sweet Briar College Mar. 21. Three days later, she helped Guilford to a 13-6 decision over league-foe Virginia Wesleyan College with four points on three goals and an assist. The win marked Guilford's fist over the Marlins since 1999 and ended a string of 11 straight losses to Virginia Wesleyan. Colley also had two draws and forced three turnovers in the triumph. She closed out the week with three goals in a Mar. 25 loss to Christopher Newport University, her seventh multiple-goal game of the season.

Colley ranks 32nd among NCAA Division III scorers with 42 points and 37th nationally with 14 assists. She is sixth in the ODAC and second on the team in points. Her 28 goals rank fourth in the league.

Coach Matthew Grosso's Quakers are off to a 6-3 start and sit atop the league standings with a 3-0 record. Guilford visits ODAC-rival Roanoke College Saturday (3/31) at 2:00 p.m.
