posted 03/14/2018

SPARTANBURG, S.C. – The Southern Conference announced its weekly awards Tuesday afternoon and Richmond goalkeeper Blake Goodman has been named the Defensive Player of the Week in the wake of his stellar effort opposite Bucknell over the weekend.

The Pittsburgh, Pa. native picked up his first win as the Spider goaltender with a 9-8 victory over the Bison on Saturday afternoon and did so by making 17 saves (.680 save pct).  Including several key chances down the stretch in the fourth quarter to keep Bucknell at bay while the offense took care of business on the other end.

Goodman has started both games for the Spiders this season and has made 23 saves to this point. Goodman and the Spiders will be back in action this afternoon opposite Mount St. Mary's. The games is set to get underway at Robins Stadium at 4 p.m.

Graham Childs Announces Commitment to Play Lacrosse at Hofstra University


October 3rd, 2017. Graham Childs, Fox Chapel High School and 365Lax elite club player, commits to play lacrosse at Hofstra University.

Coach Thomas Michaelson, at 365Lax, had this to say about Child's recruitment to Hofstra University, "Graham was a player who played on our National Showcase Team after getting a referral from his 412 Elite Coach, Peter Tumbas and he was everything Peter has said he was. During this past summer, he played lockdown defense against some of the top teams in the country so I knew his day would happen and I couldn't be happier for Graham. Hofstra got themselves a great, fundamentally sound, athletic defensman and I can't wait to watch him play as he will be playing 15 minutes down the road for his 4 year college career."
