Colgate’s Kevin Gordon Named Patriot League Defensive Player of the Week

HAMILTON, N.Y. (2/20/12) – Colgate men’s lacrosse senior Kevin Gordon was recently selected as the Patriot League Defensive Player of the Week for his performance in the team’s 10-6 win over Vermont on Saturday.

Gordon is the second player on the team to receive a weekly award this season, with junior James Queeney winning the first Defensive Player of the Week award last week. The senior co-captain collected an impressive seven groundballs and was an instrumental force in the team’s transition that enabled the offense to score 10 goals in the win.

Gordon and the Raiders will return to action this weekend when they host Dartmouth on Saturday, Feb. 25 at 1 p.m.
