CENTER VALLEY, Pa. — The Patriot League announced its weekly awards for March 4-10 in men’s lacrosse, women’s lacrosse, baseball and softball.

Colgate lifted the lid on its Patriot League campaign in men’s lacrosse with a 14-6 victory over Holy Cross Saturday, while Navy evened its League record with a 12-11 defeat of Lafayette. Also last weekend, Bucknell and Lehigh both picked up wins over nationally ranked opponents, with the Bison stymieing then-No. 9/13 Massachusetts, and the Mountain Hawks rallying to beat then-No. 13/12 Penn State at the Whitman’s Sampler Independence Classic.

Navy, Holy Cross and Colgate opened with wins in the first Patriot League women’s lacrosse contests of the year. The Mids, ranked No. 15 in the nation, have another huge test on Monday when they welcome defending national champion No. 4 Northwestern at 4 p.m. on CBS Sports Network.

Patriot League baseball teams enjoyed their best weekend of the young season as the six squads combined to win 10 of 15 games on Saturday and Sunday. That included three-game sweeps for Lehigh at Coppin State and Army over Yale as the Black Knights opened up their spring trip along with Navy and Bucknell, which also won their first contests in Florida on Sunday.

Holy Cross freshman right fielder Emily Jarvis was named the Patriot League Player and Rookie of the Week in softball as the Crusaders competed in 10 contests at the Rebel Spring Games. Colgate, Lafayette and Lehigh also competed in softball last week, as the Mountain Hawks sit atop the non-League standings at 3-3-1.
