KALAMAZOO, Mich. – The Kalamazoo College women's lacrosse team is off to a 2-0 start and today picked up an individual accolade as Rachel Madar has been named the MIAA Offensive Player of the Week.

Madar, a midfielder from DeWitt, was dominant offensively for the Hornets in a 15-4 victory over Illinois Tech on Saturday afternoon. Madar scored six goals in the contest which is tied for second most in a game in program history. She was highly efficient in front of goal, putting seven of her eight shots on goal and finishing off six of them.

In addition to her goal scoring, Madar provided one assist, picked up two ground balls, had a team-high eight draw controls, and caused one turnover.

Just two games into her college career, Madar has already scored nine goals and recorded 11 total points, both of which are team highs. She currently sits in fourth in the MIAA in goals scored and third in total points for the season.

Coach Jess Smith said, "Rachel has had an outstanding start to her first season as a Hornet.  She's a very talented player and works just as hard at practice as she does in games.  We're very proud of Rachel's hard work and success in our first two games and are excited to see her progress throughout the rest of the season."

The Hornets will return to the field tomorrow, March 6 as they travel to Indiana Tech for a 5 p.m. game.
