Cord Named Nike/Inside Lacrosse Player of the Week
BALTIMORE, MD -- Washington College senior attackman Bennett Cord (Gaithersburg, MD/Gaithersburg) has been named the Nike/Inside Lacrosse Player of the Week for Division III for the week ending March 3rd.
Cord scored three goals and assisted on another to reach 100 career points during the Shoremen's 8-4 win over Washington and Lee Saturday.
Cord's three goals all came in the third quarter, turning a 2-1 halftime lead for the Shoremen into a 5-1 cushion. He became the first Shoreman to reach 100 career points since 2008. The Shoremen's win over the Generals was their first in five years.
The win over W&L helped pushed the Shoremen to number eight in the latest United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association Division III Top 20, marking the first time the team has been ranked in the top 10 in nearly four years.
