Johns Hopkins Sweeps Big Ten Weekly Awards
By Jill Guise

Hopkins is the first team in the Big Ten to sweep the weekly awards in 2018. This is the second offensive player of the week, third freshman of the week and first defensive player of the week award for the Blue Jays since Hopkins began competing in the league in 2017. The trio led Hopkins to wins over Boston University (18-11) and Hofstra (15-6) last week at Homewood Field.
Schneidereith had back-to-back five-point (4g, 1a) performances in the Blue Jays’ two wins. Against the Terriers, she notched three of her five points in the first half as the Blue Jays took an 8-4 lead into the locker room. Schneidereith did one better on Saturday, as she tallied four of her five points, including a hat trick, in the first 30 minutes. She scored to put Hopkins up for good with 1:30 to play in the first half.
Crosson posted back-to-back career-highs in saves in helping Johns Hopkins to a 2-0 week. She posted a then career-high 12 saves, while also picking up a pair of ground balls and causing a turnover in the win over BU on Wednesday afternoon. Crosson followed with a career-best 13 saves, while allowing just six goals, and collecting a career-best six ground balls against Hofstra. The six goals by the Pride were less than half their season average (12.60) entering the game.
Cordingley tallied a pair of hat tricks in last week’s wins. She notched her first career hat trick, on just four shots, with a ground ball and a caused turnover against the Terriers on Wednesday. Two her goals against BU came on free position. Cordingley followed that with her second hat trick, including a free position goal, in the win over the Pride on Saturday.
Hopkins returns to the field on Wednesday, March 14 as the Blue Jays travel to Catonsville to take on the UMBC Retrievers at 5:00 pm.
