Liam Rooney was named the USILA National Player of the Week on April 22.

Sophomore attacker Liam Rooney was named the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association's Offensive Player of the Week for Division III lacrosse on Wednesday, April 22.  Rooney, who was also named the North Coast Athletic Conference player of the week, led Denison to league wins over Kenyon, Wabash and Wooster.  In those three contests, Rooney scored nine goals while adding five assists.

Rooney validated his national player of the week status on Wednesday night when he posted a career-high eight points in the NCAC semifinal win over Wittenberg.  Rooney scored five goals and added three assists and three ground balls while taking eight shots.  Four of his five goals came in the first half, allowing Denison to jump out to a 12-1 lead on the Tigers.

Head coach Mike Caravana has been impressed with the development of the sophomore from Redding, Conn. 

"Liam has stepped up at the highest level from playing midfield for us last year to being our lead attacker in 2015," Caravana said. "He is talented and hardworking and he is transforming into an All-American player right before our eyes."

Rooney leads the squad in goals with 40 and assists with 27.  He is the 13th player in Denison lacrosse history to score 40 goals in a single season and he leads the conference in points with 67.

With the win over Wittenberg, No. 19 Denison will take its 12-3 record to Ohio Wesleyan for Saturday's NCAC Tournament Championship game.  Faceoff is slated for 1 p.m. from Selby Stadium.
