COLCHESTER, Vt. - Saint Michael's College men's lacrosse senior Mark Yetter (Skillman, N.J./Montgomery/Delaware) and sophomore Matt Hanley (Plainview, N.Y./Bethpage) were both named to the Northeast-10 Conference Weekly Honor Roll for the week ending on Sunday, April 10.
Yetter totaled five goals, six assists and seven ground balls during a 1-1 week, scoring on half of his 10 shots and playing a hand in 11 of his team's 21 goals. In a 17-7 loss on Wednesday to Southern New Hampshire University, which was receiving national votes, Yetter had a goal, three assists and three ground balls before totaling four goals, three assists and four ground balls off the bench in a 14-7 win at Assumption College on Saturday.
Yetter leads the team with 15 assists and 32 ground balls while tying for the top spot in both goals (20) and points (35). He is tied for seventh in the NE-10 in helpers while placing eighth in points, and is the only player in the league with at least 20 goals and 30 ground balls. Yetter is approaching career highs in goals, assist and points, while he already has a personal best in ground balls. Including the 17 points he scored at Division I University of Delaware, Yetter has 94 career points, with 77 coming in 24 contests at Saint Michael's. With five more points, Yetter would join Matt Pagen '95 as the only Purple Knights with 40 points in each of their first two years with the program.
Hanley stopped a career-high 16 shots over 58:33 during his first start of the year, the 14-7 victory over Assumption on Saturday. He made nine saves in the first half while also keying the Purple Knights' 20-for-21 showing on clears. In four contests this year, Hanley has a .609 save percentage and averages 9.8 saves. Despite playing more than 46 minutes fewer than his rookie year, he already has eight more saves, stopping 39 shots. In 11 career contests, including five starts, Hanley has a .565 save percentage and a 3-1 record.
The Purple Knights head to Saint Anselm College on Tuesday for a 7 p.m. game. The Hawks were receiving votes toward last week's United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) national poll while sitting third in this week's New England Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (NEILA) regional rankings.
