For the second time in a month, the Alpha Lacrosse National Player of the Week is a Colorado Buffalo.

CU senior attacker Johnna Fusco earned the honor on Tuesday, garnering 41% of the fan vote. She beat out Boston College's Sam Apuzzo (26%), Florida's Sammi Burgess (17%) and Stony Brook's Kylie Ohlmiller (16%) for the honor.

Fusco led the Buffs, who are currently ninth in the media poll and 10th in the coaches' poll, to wins against then-No. 14 Denver and Marquette last week in Boulder. In those games, she combined for nine goals and three assists.

On February 14, senior goalkeeper Paige Soenksen earned the Alpha Lacrosse national honor after tying a career-high with 19 saves against then-No. 9 Northwestern. She became the first Buff to ever earn the national honor as the Buffs upset NU 11-10 in overtime to start the season on Feb. 12.
