Georgetown's Christiaan Trunz Named ECAC Co-Defensive Player of the Week

May 1, 2007

Washington, D.C. - Georgetown University senior men's lacrosse player Christiaan Trunz (Manhasset, N.Y./Manhasset) was named the ECAC League's Co-Defensive Player of the Week on Tuesday afternoon.

Trunz helped lead the Hoyas to a 12-8 win over Rutgers on Saturday at the Multi-Sport Field on the Hilltop. It was the sixth-straight win for the Hoyas, who improved to 10-2 overall and 6-0 in the ECAC, clinching the league's regular season title and the automatic bid to the 2007 NCAA Tournament.

Georgetown clinched its sixth ECAC Regular Season title with the win over the Scarlet Knights. The Hoyas have won league titles in 2001, 2001, 2003, 2004, 2006 and 2007.

The key to the Rutgers win, however, was Trunz's performance at face-offs, as he won 20-of-23, 87.0 percent. Trunz won all eight in the first quarter and lost only one chance in the first half and then won 10-of-12 in the second half.

It was the highest percentage for a Georgetown player with more than 10 attempts since Andy Corno won 15-of-18 (93.7 percent) against Army in the NCAA Tournament in 2005. It also marked just the second time since a 21-8 win over now-defunct Butler in 2001 that the Hoyas had won 20 face-offs in a game.

For the season, Trunz has captured 55.3 percent of his face-offs (121-of-219), including 60.2 percent (74-of-123) in conference play. Trunz ranks 22nd nationally in face-off percentage. For his career, he has won 54.8 percent of his face-off attempts (298-of-545).

Georgetown is ranked No. 4 in the country by the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association and in the Nike/Inside Lacrosse Top 25 poll.

Georgetown plays its final regular season game next weekend, hosting Penn State on Senior Day at the Multi-Sport Field. Face-off for the game, which will be broadcast on CSTV, is set for 2 p.m.
