Christman garnered her third career Defensive Player of the Week honor after notching 1.00 goals against average, and a 0.750 save percentage in a 2-0 week for the St. Mary’s College of Maryland field hockey team.

She began with four saves in a 1-0 midweek road win over Cabrini University (Oct. 12) for her third clean sheet of the season. Christman followed that performance with two stops in a 3-2 victory over Marywood University (Oct. 15).

Christman currently leads the conference with three shutouts, ranking second with a 1.61 goals-against average and fifth with a 0.688 save percentage and 3.67 saves per game.

After scoring twice in the Seahawks’ 3-2 win over Marywood, Dickens made the weekly honor roll. This was the 5-7 midfielder’s second multiple-goal game of her career.

St. Mary’s College (9-3, 4-0 AEC) will be back in action on Wednesday, October 19, when the Seahawks travel to Aston, Pa., to take on Neumann University in league conference action at 4:00 p.m
