Sophomore attackman Cody Lehrer and Brett Schmidt and junior goalkeeper T.C. DiBartolo claimed weekly honors on Tuesday.

Lehrer, a Baltimore native and Dulaney graduate, was named the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Week after he scored eight goals in two games last week. He scored twice in an 11-6 loss to No. 9 Georgetown and six times in a 12-9 victory over MAAC rival Detroit Mercy.

Lehrer, who has scored five or more goals in a game four times this season, leads the Mountaineers (6-3) in goals with 35 and ranks first in Division I in goals per game with 3.9.

Schmidt was selected as the Co-Rookie of the Week after he registered seven points in the win against Detroit Mercy. Schmidt finished with six assists, which is the most by a Mount St. Mary's player since Roland Miller posted six assists in a 17-9 rout of Canisius on March 28, 1998. Schmidt ranks second on the team in points with 23 and is tied with twin brother Bryant for the team lead in assists with 13.

DiBartolo captured the Northeast Conference Defensive Player of the Week award for the second consecutive week after he made 33 saves last week. The Bowie native and Archbishop Spalding graduate made 20 saves against the Hoyas and 13 stops against Detroit Mercy, moving into fourth place on the school's all-time career saves list with 460.

The Mountaineers will be joining the Northeast Conference next season, along with Bryant, Quinnipiac, Robert Morris, Sacred Heart and Wagner. The league is handing out Player, Defensive Player and Rookie of the Week honors and postseason awards this season.
