SU roundup: Heggins named to All-ODAC squad

Daily Staff Reports – sports@nvdaily.com

FOREST — Sophomore Imani Heggins has been named second team All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference for women’s basketball in selections announced Thursday night as part of the league’s annual tournament banquet.

Heggins becomes the second SU women’s basketball player (after junior Holly Chittenden was named last season) after leading the Hornets in scoring at 15 points per game and finishing second in rebounding at 6.2 per outing.

Heggins started the season by being named to the all-tournament team at Randolph-Macon and has put up consistent numbers since that opening tourney.

She has reached double-digit scoring in all but three games and had a career-high 32 versus Randolph-Macon on Feb. 11.

Her 15 points per game average is good for fifth in the league.

Heggins and the Hornets continue ODAC tournament play Thursday at 1 p.m. against top-seeded Eastern Mennonite.

Men’s lacrosse

WINCHESTER — Visiting Frostburg State held Shenandoah off the scoreboard for the first 38:28 in a 9-2 non-league men’s lacrosse victory Wednesday afternoon.

The Bobcats (2-0) scored the opening five goals of the contest and kept SU (2-2) from finding the back of the net until Aaron Paul scored unassisted at the 6:32 mark of the third.

Frostburg answered Paul’s goal with two more to finish the third before sophomore Connor Bishop tallied unassisted at 13:36 for what proved to be the Hornets’ final goal of the game.

Frostburg used dominant performances at the faceoff ‘x’ and with its ride to maintain possession throughout the contest.

The Bobcats won 12 of 15 faceoffs on the day, including 8 of 9 in the second half, and forced Shenandoah into 13 failed clears.

The Hornets, who successfully cleared on four of five chances in the opening stanza, failed on 12 of 18 combined attempts in the second and third quarters.

Frostburg also held a 47-19 advantage in shots, with SU taking 11 of those shots in the final 15 minutes.

Freshman Ben Judy was outstanding in the goal, making a season-best 22 saves. He had eight stops in the third quarter alone.

The Hornets are back in action on Saturday at 1 p.m., in a home non-league contest against Hood. This game is also the opener in a doubleheader with the Hornet women.
