Donnellan, Gramarossa sweep MLC weekly awards

WAUKESHA, Wis. -- Concordia Wisconsin's Jack Donnellan and Ben Gramarossa were named Midwest Lacrosse Conference Offensive and Defensive Player of the Week, the league office announced.

Donnellan (Grayslake, Ill.) was the offensive catalyst for the Falcons last week, scoring four goals and assisting on three markers during a pair of league wins. He came up big with a hat trick (one man-up goal) and two assists against Benedictine before accumulating two points (one goal, one assist) at Concordia Chicago. He also had two ground balls against the Cougars.

Gramarossa (Smithtown, N.Y.) was instrumental in the Falcons two victories last week, winning 15-of-18 faceoffs. The sophomore midfielder was 12-of-15 on faceoffs and picked up three ground balls during an important home MLC win over Benedictine. He was also 3-of-3 on faceoffs and had two ground balls at Concordia Chicago.

The weekly honor for Donnellan is the first of his career and the second for Gramarossa.
