Makoid Named American University Student-Athlete of the Week, Presented by GEICO

Women’s lacrosse’s Amanda Makoid has been selected as the American University Student-Athlete of the Week, Presented by GEICO, Department of Athletics officials announced Monday. Makoid registered a game-high five points in AU’s 19-12 win over Lafayette on Saturday.

Makoid’s five points, which came on three goals and two assists, matched a career-high. Each of her three goals came in the first half, which helped the Eagles jump out to an 11-4 halftime lead en route to the victory.

The senior from Doylestown, Pa., has scored 68 goals in her career, including a team-high 22 this season. She has made 64 career appearances as an Eagle with 55 starts.

This is the second time that Makoid has been selected as the American University Student-Athlete of the Week, Presented by GEICO in the three-year history of the award. She was also honored March 30, 2009, following a seven-goal week in AU’s two games.

Makoid has helped the Eagles jump out to a 3-1 Patriot League record, which puts them alone in second place in the conference standings. AU will return to action on Wednesday, April 7 at first-place Navy. Game time from Annapolis, Md., is slated for 5 p.m.
