It is no surprise that the 2012 and 2013 Greater Northeast Athletic Conference Player of the Year is dominating the field again for another incredible season. Senior captain Britney Wuorio has excelled by setting records and winning a GNAC championship during her time with the women’s lacrosse program.
In 2013, Wuorio led the GNAC in both points and goals, and ranked second in assists. She ranked first in the nation with 129 points and finished with a tie in fourth among D-III women’s lacrosse players with 83 goals. This season, Wuorio is currently ranked in the top of five in the GNAC in goals, points, shots, shots on goal, and assists.
So far, Wuorio has received Player of the Week for week three and Honor Roll for week four.
“It felt pretty good getting GNAC player of the week for week three. It was a good accomplishment not only for me but for the team,” said the senior attacker. “The week before [Caitlyn] Brecher won it and I was glad to see that Lasell players won that title two weeks in a row.” Wuorio found out about winning the Player of the Week from her friends posting it on Twitter.
During the preseason coaches’ poll, the Lasers were picked as the favorite to take home the GNAC championship once again. “I think this is a lot of pressure because every team is going to play up to us more than they will other teams,” said Wuorio. “I am very excited about this though, because it helps give us the motivation to win again when every other team wants to see us lose.”
