Ali Levendusky Named America East Women’s Lacrosse Player of the Week
Ali Levendusky scored 11 goals and 13 points in two games last week.
Levendusky scored a team-high 11 goals and 13 points last week, leading the Retrievers to back-to-back victories. She added seven ground balls and three draw controls, and she tallied the game-winner in both contests.
Levendusky equaled her career high with six goals in UMBC’s 17-11 victory at America East rival Stony Brook on April 2, tallying three times in the first 15 minutes of action to help the Retrievers snap their seven-game losing skid. She also picked up six ground balls in the game.
Then in UMBC’s 21-4 win over Howard on April 5, Levendusky scored five goals and two assists for a career-best seven points, the most by a Retriever since Kelly Fiorani tallied seven at Virginia Tech on Feb. 24, 2006.
Levendusky has scored at least three goals in 11 out of 13 games this season, and she leads the America East with 44 goals, the ninth-highest single-season total in school history and the most by a Retriever since Renee Tirocchi scored 47 in 2001. In addition, she is the first Retriever to score 40 goals in a season since she tallied 41 as a sophomore in 2006. Levendusky also ranks fifth all-time at UMBC with 125 career goals and eighth with 165 career points.
Levendusky and the Retrievers (4-9) begin a tough final stretch on Wednesday when they host 14th-ranked Johns Hopkins at 7:30 p.m. at UMBC Stadium.
