Stony Brook's Ally Kennedy Named Brine/USL Player of the Week

Stony Brook has recaptured its swagger, with Ally Kennedy leading the charge.

Kennedy, the Seawolves’ junior midfielder and part of the U.S. women’s national team player pool, put up a combined 22 points in wins over Johns Hopkins, Albany and USC to earn Brine/US Lacrosse Player of the Week honors.

Kennedy’s big week started with four goals and two assists in a 12-9 win over then-No. 13 Johns Hopkins on Tuesday, continued with a seven-goal, three-assist outburst in a 17-9 win over America East rival Albany on Friday and culminated in a five-goal performance (to go with an assist) in a 12-10 win over then-No. 16 USC on Sunday.

The Brine/US Lacrosse Player of the Week, selected by US Lacrosse Magazine staff and contributors, recognizes the top performers in Division I women’s lacrosse throughout the season.
