CENTER VALLEY, Pa. — The Patriot League honored Colgate junior midfielder Megan Ark with the Rockin' Refuel® Performance of the Week award after she scored 12 goals last week in a pair of League wins for the Raiders.
Ark scored four goals in an 11-7 win over Boston U on April 9, and she followed that performance up with eight goals in an 18-17 double-overtime win over Lafayette on Saturday. Her goal with 21 seconds left erased the one-goal lead Lafayette had taken 15 seconds prior and forced overtime. There, the two teams exchanged goals, and in the second overtime, Colgate netted the game-winner to clinch a bid to the Patriot League Tournament.
Ark leads the team with 42 goals on the season and she’s one goal behind the League’s leading scorer. Ark also has nine assists for 51 points, and she joined the Patriot League Network via Skype to talk about her performance and her team’s postseason bid in this Rockin’ Refuel® feature.
The Patriot League announced in April a corporate partnership with Rockin' Refuel®, a complete line of protein milk beverages made by Shamrock Farms. Rockin' Refuel is designated as "The Official Recovery Beverage of The Patriot League Championships" and was the presenting sponsor of the 2013 Patriot League Men and Women's Lacrosse Championships before adding the Performance of the Week award to its list of Patriot League accolades.
