Maryland, Navy players earn weekly honors

Maryland swept the Atlantic Coast Conference weekly honors as junior midfielder Joe Cummings and senior defenseman Brett Schmidt were named the Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week, respectively.

Cummings scored four goals in the No. 6 Terps' 12-7 victory over No. 7 Virginia last Saturday. All four of the Towson native and Loyola graduate's goal occurred during Maryland's 7-0 run that helped turn a 5-3 deficit into a 10-5 advantage.

A week after shutting out North Carolina senior attackman Billy Bitter, Schmidt limited Cavaliers junior attackman Steele Stanwick to a single goal on three shots. Schmidt and the rest of the defense held Virginia, which had entered the contest with the most prolific offense in Division I, to a season-low seven goals.

Navy boasted a pair of winners in junior R.J. Wickham and freshman Tucker Hall, who were named the Goalkeeper of the Week and the Rookie of the Week, respectively, by the Patriot League.

Wickham produced a career-best 20 saves in the Midshipmen's 9-8 loss to Georgetown on Friday night. It was the first time a Navy goalie had turned aside 20 shots since Seth DiNola stopped 21 shots by Penn State in 2003. With 326 career saves, Wickham needs just eight more to pass Steve Nims for 10th place on the school's all-time saves list.

Hull registered three goals and one assist against the Hoyas, upping his season total to 33 points on 19 goals and 14 assists. The attackman's 33 points are the most by a freshman since Nick Mirabito compiled 33 points in 2005. Hull's 14 assists are the most since Ian Dingman posted 17 in 2003.
