Lynn University athletics had an incredible showing out of the league office on Monday afternoon, securing six Sunshine State Conference Player of the Week accolades. Michael Baez was named men’s basketball’s Player of the Week, Dryden Brous and Collin McClelland picked up two of the three men’s lacrosse awards, Helen Kreuzer was named the women’s Golfer of the Week with Florian Clemares and Natalia Siedliska clinching a Fighting Knights' sweep in the tennis category.
The 2019 Lynn University men’s lacrosse season kicked off yesterday afternoon with one of the biggest, if not the biggest, victories in program history. As a result, the Fighting Knights caught the attention of the nation, breaking into the USILA/Warrior and New Balance Coaches Poll at No. 18, as announced by the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association on Monday.
If any part of the collegiate men’s lacrosse world was not paying attention to Lynn University before, they certainly are now. The Fighting Knights opened up their 2019 campaign at home on Sunday vs. seventh-ranked NYIT, thrashing the Bears in a dominant 19-5 victory. The win marks the first time in program history that the Blue and White defeated a team nationally ranked No. 7 or higher.
The fifth-ranked Lynn University women’s tennis team was nearly flawless on Sunday afternoon as the Fighting Knights recorded a dominant 7-0 victory over Webber International in nonconference action.
Lynn University’s third-ranked men’s tennis team was right back in action on Sunday morning, posting a 6-1 nonconference victory over Webber International.
