Junior middie Jill Czaplinski of the Oglethorpe women's lacrosse team has been named the SAA Female Athlete of the Week.
Czaplinski scored five goals in last week's 12-11 overtime win at Berry, a victory which vaulted the Stormy Petrels into the SAA playoffs for just the second time since the field was reduced to six teams in 2015. She put 11 of her 15 shots on target and picked up a big go-ahead goal to make it 11-10 with just over five minutes left in regulation.
Czaplinski and the rest of the Stormy Petrels will take on No. 3 seed Centre in the first round at a neutral site in Sewanee, Tennessee, Friday at 7 p.m. EDT. The winner will advance to take on No. 2 seed Sewanee the following day.
