Smith and Papalia earn A-10 honors
GW senior forward Chemar Smith was named Atlantic 10 Player of the Week for the second time this season for her play in last week’s matches.
Smith scored three goals and assisted on a fourth in two victories over Temple and St. Joseph’s. Smith also became the school’s all-time goals scored leader with 45 in her career last week.
Freshman midfielder Lauren Papalia was named the A-10 Rookie of the Week. She was involved in both scores in Friday’s win over Temple, scoring the game-winner and assisting on an insurance goal by Smith. Papalia is second on the team in goals (nine) and points (23).
