Siena water polo junior Lea Allen has been named the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) Player of the Week. It is the first offensive player of the week award for the Saints since 2011, and the first career accolade for Allen.
Lea Allen amassed seven goals and shot .875% in the Saints’ two games this weekend at the Hartwick Invite. Against No. 18 Hartwick, Allen tallied two goals and four assists with a perfect 1.000 percentage. In the Saints’ win against Gannon, Allen collected a team-high five goals and assisted on two more, en route to the one goal victory for Siena.
Allen and the Saints will travel to her home state to take on opponents in the Wolverine Invite in Ann Arbor, Mich. The competition starts March 16, at 11:15 a.m. against Gannon.
