Zack Czap picked up his sixth career Middle Atlantic Conference Special Teams Player of the Week honor on Sunday, a day after kicking a 37-yard field goal and converting on five extra points for Lycoming in a 38-7 win over Wilkes.
A week after missing a field goal and having a PAT?and field goal blocked, Czap was perfect. He also averaged 29 yards per punt on three kicks, also drawing a roughing the kicker penalty.
"We worked all week on being faster to the ball. We lost sight of that, and for whatever reason he struggled (against Widener)," Lycoming head coach Mike Clark said. "I think it says a lot about him as a kid to have a day like this. He's been all-conference for a reason. He was inspired or motivated to come out and do a really good job."
Czap was honored twice as a freshman when he was named a first-team all-MAC punter. He was also honored three times last year as a sophomore.
Lycoming quarterback Tyler Jenny was also named to the MAC?Honor Roll after completing 17 of 26 passes for a career-high 239 yards and three touchdowns.
UMass scored three goals in the first half to pick up a 4-0 win over Lock Haven in college field hockey on Sunday. Noralie Weusthuis scored a pair of goals for the Minutemen.
The Lycoming College women's volleyball team had its Commonwealth Conference first-round playoff match against Widener scheduled for today postponed because of the threat of Hurricane Sandy. The match will be made up Tuesday if possible.
