Leggett and Sisselberger Earn Weekly Awards Following Bucknell Win
BETHLEHEM, Pa. – Following Sunday’s 13-12 win over Bucknell, a pair of Lehigh men’s lacrosse student-athletes were recognized with Patriot League weekly awards on Monday. Graduate student Teddy Leggett was named the league’s Defensive Player of the Week for the first time in his career, while senior Mike Sisselberger earned Faceoff Specialist of the Week for the third time this season – increasing his already Patriot League record number to nine in his career .
On Sunday, Leggett helped anchor a defense that held Bucknell scoreless for a stretch of 23:09 bridging the end of the first through third quarters, a key stretch of that game that allowed the Mountain Hawks to take control. In the process, he collected six groundballs – his fourth straight game with 6+ GBs (the first time that’s happened in his decorated career). For the season, Leggett owns 42 groundballs and a team-leading 19 caused turnovers.
