MADISON, N.J. - With the winter sports concluding their regular season and spring sports beginning their campaigns, a total of nine student-athletes have been selected as Landmark Players of the Week. The Landmark Player of the Week selections are made by the Landmark Conference office.
Freshman Ross Danzig netted a career high to help Scranton earn a key road win to clinch the number-one seed for the Landmark postseason. He scored 28 points on 64-percent shooting from the field, and 57-percent from three-point range as Scranton rallied past Moravian. He also contributed nine rebounds, three assists, three steals and a blocked shot for the Royals in the win.
Jill Woerner helped Catholic close out the regular season with a win over local rival Goucher with a strong all-around game. She netted 15 points on 60-percent shooting from the field, while also grabbing six rebounds. She also added four blocks and three steals on the defensive end, spearheading a Catholic defense that limited their opponents to 28 points.
Susquehanna's Ken Schetroma produced another strong weekend of competition at the Susquehanna Open. The junior set a new personal best with a toss of 15.05-meters to place fifth in the weight throw, and second among Division III competitors. The mark is the best in the conference this season. He then added a fifth-place finish in the shot put, again second among DIII athletes, with a throw of 15.33-meters.
Moravian's Allison Vanek won a pair of events at the Susquehanna Open in a final tune-up before the Landmark Championships. The freshman cleared an ECAC-qualifying height of 3.59 meter to win the pole vault competition at the meet, and then jumped 5.19 meters to place first in the long jump. The long jump distance was also good for an ECAC qualifying mark.
Goucher's Kyle Boncaro got off to a sparkling start as the Gophers won a pair of games on a season-opening trip to Texas. The senior scored seven goals and added two assists in the team's opening win over Southwestern (Texas) and then added four goals and four assists in a win over Dallas. He produced 17 points over the two matches, becoming just the second player in program history to surpass 200 career points.
Patrick Pfaff notched his first career victory as Catholic opened the 2012 season with a win over Hood. In a low-scoring affair, Pfaff totaled 14 saves and surrendered just three goals for an .824 save percentage. He also added three ground balls to the defensive effort and had at least two saves in each quarter.
Kevin Holze opened his senior season with an unbeaten weekend of play for Moravian as the Greyhounds claimed a pair of wins. He claimed a win at first singles and first doubles to open the year as the team earned an 8-1 win over Salve Regina, and then matched those wins at second singles and second doubles as the team collected a 6-3 victory over Salve Regina on the second day of the weekend series. The wins moved him into the top-5 in Moravian history in career singles and doubles wins.
Donald Noble turned in one of the fastest runs in program history at the Susquehanna Open. The junior placed second in the mile at the event, running a time of 4:20.70 which is the fastest in the Landmark this season. It also ranks as the third fastest time in Moravian program history.
Shannon Galvin was strong in a pair of events for Susquehanna at its own Susquehanna Open. The sophomore improved on her previous personal best by 10 seconds to run a 5:22.61 time in the mile, placing seventh overall and first among Division III runners. The time is the fastest in the Landmark this season. She also ran on Susquehanna's 4x400 team that finished first among DIII teams and fourth overall with a time of 4:20.3.
