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

The incredibly prolific and productive sophomore midfielder/attacker became her school’s all-time leading scorer with a goal against Marcus Whitman (N.Y.) last week. Unfortunately, Savage tore her ACL in the next game against Canandaigua (N.Y.). Savage has 64 goals and 37 assists this season for the Red Raiders, who advanced to the Class C state semifinals last season. She has 190 goals and 76 assists in the past three seasons.
