Crance Earns ACC Co-Defensive Player Of The Week Honor

March 12, 2018

By: Robby Hamman

Junior defenseman Hugh Crance has earned the honor of Atlantic Coast Conference Co-Defensive Player of the Week, after his performance in Notre Dame’s 11-9 win over No. 5 Denver this past weekend. This is the first weekly ACC honor Crance has earned in his career.

Crance played a major role in the Irish defense, locking down the potent Pioneer attack. The junior anchored a defense that held Denver to nine goals, their fewest total in a game this season.

The Irish have now held opponents to single-digit goal totals in three of the four games they have played this season. Even more impressive, Notre Dame gave up just six goals to Denver in even-man situations.

Crance and the Irish have another top-10 showdown this weekend, as the team opens its ACC slate against No. 7 Virginia at 6 p.m. on Saturday, March 17. The game will air live on ESPNU.

The University of Notre Dame men’s lacrosse team pursues excellence on and off the field through the three pillars in which the program is built: Character, Culture & Community. These three foundational values guide the promise of the program, which is to provide its student-athletes with the most compelling and enriching experience in all of college athletics. Through academics, competition, service and travel, the program aims to immerse its players in situations that enhance their student-athlete experience to help them become the people, students and teammates they aspire to be.
