Penn State sophomore attackman Grant Ament earned national recognition this week as both the Alpha Lacrosse National Player of the Week, presented by Inside Lacrosse, and the USILA/BSN Sports D1 Lacrosse Player of the Week.
Ament is the first Nittany Lion to ever earn either honor.
The sophomore recorded a career-best six goals and three assists Saturday during a 20-10 victory over Cornell. Nationally, it was the second-best performance of the year behind Duke’s Justin Guterding, who posted 10 points against Cleveland State.
No. 9 Penn State will next travel to Villanova for a game 11 a.m. Saturday.
