from press releass

HIGH POINT, N.C. - Limestone College junior midfielder Brian Patridge (Columbus, OH / Dublin Scioto HS) has been named the Conference Carolinas men's lacrosse player of the week, as announced by the league on Tuesday.

Patridge totaled four points on Friday in the nationally fifth-ranked Saints' 16-5 win over NCAA Division II South Region foe Florida Southern at "The Rock".  Patridge, who assisted on one goal in the game, added three goals of his own and has scored six in leading Limestone to back-to-back wins to open the 2010 season.

This marks the second consecutive week that a Limestone player has earned this honor.  Last week, the first of the season, midfielder/face-off specialist Sean Bennett (East Moriches, N.Y. / Westhampton Beach HS) was recognized for his efforts in the Saints' 15-2 season opening win over Wingate (2/20).  The 6-2, 200lb Bennett won 15 of his 16 face-off attempts (.938%) serving as the catalyst as Limestone won 20-of-21 overall on the day.  He also added six groundballs in helping the Saints to a 43-10 advantage in that category.

Limestone (2-0) returns to action on Sunday, March 7 with a showdown against second-ranked Le Moyne (1-0) in Severna Park (HS), Maryland with face-off set for 12:00 p.m.
