HARRISONBURG -- James Madison redshirt junior Casey Ancarrow has been selected the Colonial Athletic Association women's lacrosse Player of the Week for the week ending March 3.

The Dukes attacker scored a total of eight goals in JMU's wins over Virginia Tech and Fairfield.

She then scored three goals on only four shots and had an assist for a game-high four points in a 13-8 home win over Fairfield on March 2. Ancarrow also had two ground balls and two draw controls in the contest.

She leads the CAA and is tied for seventh in the NCAA with a goals per game average of 4.0.

Her performance last week gave Ancarrow career totals of 130 goals, 50 assists and 180 points. She moved from 14th to ninth on JMU's career goals list and is only 10 goals away from sole possession of sixth place.

She also moved from 13th to 11th on the career points list and is only five points away from sole possession of ninth place.

JMU is off to a 3-0 start for the third time in the last four years. The Dukes' next game is at 10th-ranked Penn State on March 6.
