TOWSON, Md. --- Moravian College senior long stick midfielder Jimmy Schicke has been named one of the Landmark Conference Men's Lacrosse Athletes of the Week.
With the unprecedented cancellation of spring sports due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Landmark Conference will be recognizing an athlete from each member institution in each conference-sponsored spring sport for the remainder of the academic year. Honorees were nominated for recognition by their respective institution based on achievements from the shortened season and career accolades.
Schicke had one goal, one assist, 22 ground balls and eight caused turnovers through five matches when the 2020 season was cancelled. Schicke, who was selected to the 2017 & 2019 Landmark All-Conference First Team and the 2018 Landmark All-Conference Second Team, had three goals, four assists, 164 ground balls, eighth in program history, 64 caused turnovers and was 17-for-46 on face-offs in his career while starting all 43 matches of his career.
"Jimmy has been an incredible player for us, he's a skilled takeaway defender and has great stick skills," stated Head Coach Dave Carty. "He's the total package as an LSM. As a captain, he leads by example, he always practices hard and the players respect him."
