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

Frankie Solomon of the American University women’s lacrosse team has been selected as the American University Student-Athlete of the Week, Department of Athletics officials announced Monday.

Solomon, a senior goalkeeper from Carlsbad, Calif., allowed a career-low four goals in American’s 10-4 victory over Davidson on Sunday afternoon. She registered seven saves in picking up her second win of the season. Additionally, AU’s four goals allowed were the fewest in program history since May 1, 2004, when the Eagles defeated Bucknell, 17-3, in the Patriot League Tournament Semifinals.

This is the first American University Student-Athlete of the Week award for Solomon is her career.

Prior to Sunday’s game, Solomon and the other four senior student-athletes on AU’s women’s lacrosse squad were honored in a pregame ceremony. Click here to watch the ceremony.

The Eagles will close out the regular season on Saturday, April 24 at Holy Cross. Game time is slated for 1 p.m. With a win, AU will earn a berth into the four-team Patriot League Tournament.
