LaFrance, Towe SUNY Canton Athletes Of Week
CANTON – Tatum Lafrance, a junior on the women’s volleyball team, and Madison Rowe, a junior on the women’s soccer team, have been named this week’s Roos of the Week.
Lafrance was outstanding averaging 2.89 kills and 2.56 digs per set as the Roos split a pair of matches at their home tri-match last weekend. The junior opened the weekend with seven kills and 10 digs in a four set loss to Elmira. Lafrance led the team to a thrilling comeback from two sets down and trailing 11-3 in the fifth set to earn a 16-14 win v. Plattsburgh. She totaled 19 kills (.349 hitting percentage) to go with 13 digs in the 3-2 win.
Rowe recorded her first collegiate hat trick in an 8-0 road win at NVU-Lyndon on Saturday. The junior scored the Roos first two goals, including the game-winner and added the team’s fifth goal to put the game out of reach. All three of her shots were on goal and found the back of the net. In Sunday’s 1-0 win v. NVU-Johnson she drew a foul in the box that led to the ensuing game-winning penalty kick. The Roos remain unbeaten in conference play at 2-0-1 through three NAC contests.
