Dickinson junior Kassidy Lesher (Shoemakersville, Pa./Hamburg) was named the Centennial Conference Women's Basketball Co-Player of the Week.

Lesher averaged a double-double with 15.0 points and 12.0 rebounds, while shooting 62.5 percent from the field and 77 percent from the line. She went 10-of-13 from the stripe to lead the Red Devils to a pair of wins and a berth in the Centennial Conference playoffs.

Haverford sophomore guard Macy Goldbach has been named Centennial Conference Player of the Week for the week ending February 12, the conference office announced on Monday afternoon.

Goldbach averaged 19.7 points per game and shot 51.2 percent from the floor during the three game week. The Fords won all three contests en route to clinching the top seed in the Centennial Conference tournament.

Goldbach eclipsed her career-high with a 21 point effort in a Tuesday evening win at Muhlenberg, draining five shots from beyond the arc as Haverford withstood a comeback attempt from the Mules to take sole possession of first place. On Thursday against Johns Hopkins, Goldbach again set a career high, chipping in 23 points while again matching the five three-pointer effort.

On Saturday at home against McDaniel, Goldbach paced the Fords with 15 points, with yet another five three-pointer performance. Overall, Goldbach shot 60 percent (15-25) from beyond the three-point line on the week.
