Preis, the fourth Seahawk to earn Offensive Player of the Week honors, is the third player to receive the award in the last three weeks. He surpassed the previous records of 11 assists and 13 points set by Jude Brown ’22 on April 9, 2022, against Wells, by handing out 14 assists and tallying 16 points. Preis also contributed two goals and a ground ball.

Preis’ 14 assists rank second in Division III, just one behind Saint Joseph’s College of Maine’s Timothy Goodfellow, who had 15 helpers in a 29-13 win over University of Southern Maine on March 22. Additionally, Preis’ 16 points rank fourth this season amongst individual game-highs in points.

With a conference-best 3.27 assists per game, Preis currently ranks fourth in Division III. He also leads the United East with 49 assists, 69 points, and 4.60 points per game.

The St. Mary’s College of Maryland men’s lacrosse team’s win at Wells College secured them the No. 1 seed in the upcoming United East Men’s Lacrosse Championship Tournament.
