AUSTINTOWN, Ohio – For the second time in his career, Baldwin Wallace University senior three-time All-Ohio Athletic Conference attack Chad Steinwachs (Buffalo, N.Y./Williamsville North) has been named the OAC Men's Lacrosse Offensive Player of the Week.
Steinwachs had a record-setting week to lead the Yellow Jackets to non-conference victories over Kenyon College and Transylvania (Ky.) University. In the 17-16 win over Kenyon, the senior tallied four goals and a school-record eight assists for a school-record 12 points. Steinwachs owned the previous single-game assist record with seven and tied two others with 11 points for the single-game point record.
