CLEVELAND, Ohio – Spencer Butler was named the North Coast Athletic Conference Player of the Week on Monday after the senior helped the Big Red end the regular season with a pair of wins over Hiram and Ohio Wesleyan. This marks the third-straight week that the Denison men's lacrosse program has earned the conference honor, joining Brooks Davy (April 22) and Peter Pittroff (April 15) as the last three award winners.

Rounding out the regular season with a 16-13 victory at Ohio Wesleyan on Saturday, Butler fueled the Big Red rally as he posted three-consecutive goals over a two-minute span in the third quarter to bring DU within two at 9-7. The senior added three more goals in the fourth to help Denison take down their rivals and secure their 18th NCAC regular season championship.

Butler finished the game with seven goals on 13 shots to pass Andy John for second place on Denison's all-time scoring list with 176 goals. The Essex Fells, N.J. native also posted three goals in DU's 25-3 win over Hiram to give him 10 goals for the week.

As a senior, Butler currently leads the Big Red with 56 goals while adding 13 assists and 14 ground balls.

Entering the NCAC Tournament as the No. 1 seed, Denison will host the fourth-seeded College of Wooster on Thursday, May 2 in the conference semifinals at 4 p.m.
