March 16, 2009

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-Senior attackman Matt Leary of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's men's lacrosse team has been honored by the Little East Conference.

Leary has been named LEC Offensive Player of the Week.

Leary led the Corsairs with seven goals and six assists in their first three games, scoring three goals Saturday against SUNY Maritime and four goals, including the game-winning goal, in UMass Dartmouth's season opening victory at MIT. He currently leads UMass Dartmouth in scoring.

"We're excited about Matt Leary's being named Little East Player of the Week," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Kevin Mahoney. "He is one of our team leaders, he has been an asset to our team for three years, and he has been doing a good job of bringing up the underclassmen."

The Corsairs are 1-2 and will return to action when they host Salve Regina Wednesday.
