The US Lacrosse Players of the Week recognize the most outstanding individual performances in high school boys’ lacrosse in each of the five regions — Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, South, Midwest and West — outlined in our high school coverage.

NORTHEAST

Will Donovan, Brunswick (Conn.)

The Notre Dame-bound long-stick midfielder rose to the occasion in an overtime win over Darien (Conn.) Saturday in a matchup that had been circled on the calendar since Brunswick’s schedule was released.

Donovan was a menace throughout to the Darien attack, helping hold the Blue Wave to a season-low eight goals. The junior also scored the tying goal in the fourth quarter after Charlie Johnson forced a turnover and the Bruins rallied from a 7-3 third-quarter deficit.

“Will Donovan could be one of the most underrated juniors in the country,” Brunswick coach David Bruce said. “A total gamer who creates havoc in the middle of the field, Donovan leads our team in caused turnovers and scored the tying goal against Darien Saturday — a great competitor and teammate.”

Also notable: Jack McInerney, Kennedy Catholic (N.Y.); Mike Guenther, North Rockland (N.Y.); Andy Demopoulos, Darien (Conn.); Mike Leo, St. Anthony’s (N.Y.)

MID-ATLANTIC

Will Angrick, Georgetown Prep (D.C.)

Angrick powered Georgetown to a pair of wins over national power Landon (Md.) last week. The Notre Dame commit scored eight goals in the sweep of the Bears. He had a hat trick in Prep’s 11-5 win on Thursday and then came back with five goals in a game in which the Hoyas needed them all for a 10-9 win on Saturday. The wins pushed Prep to 4-1 in the early going, and Angrick has lived up to expectations with his overall play.

Also notable: Riley Albregts, Mountain Lakes (N.J.); Denzel Evans, Archbishop Curley (Md.); Colin McGill, Malvern Prep (Pa.); McCabe Millon, McDonogh (Md.); Hunter Schulter, Summit (N.J.); Jasper Simon, St. Stephen’s & St. Agnes (Va.)

SOUTH

Will Adams, St. Andrew’s (Fla.)

Adams scored four times in last week’s victory over Belen Jesuit (Fla.) in the regional finals. He just recently returned to the lineup after missing a significant portion of the season, but he’s showed no rust. The Amhurst commit has scored 12 times in just six games played this season.

Also notable: Andrew Atchison, Lassiter (Ga.)
