Women's lacrosse National Player of the Week (March 13): Taylor VanThof, Loyola Maryland

Taylor VanThof, Loyola Maryland, junior

Livonia, N.Y., midfielder

VanThof won 17 draws and scored seven goals, including the game-winner over Towson in triple overtime last week. In the 14-13 upset of then-No. 10 Towson, she scored four goals and had 10 draw controls. She controlled the last three draws in regulation as the Greyhounds rallied from six goals down at the half. Saturday, she scored three goals and had seven draw controls in a 13-7 win over then-No. 13 Princeton as the Greyhounds (3-2) won their third straight game over a top-15 team. With the upsets, the Greyhounds moved from No. 18 in the Inside Lacrosse media poll to No. 12 this week. A two-time All-Patriot League selection, VanThof holds school records for most draw controls in a game (21) and in a season (146). Her 21 draw controls last season against Colgate tied her for second on the NCAA all-time single-game list.
