COLLEGE NOTEBOOK: Deveans repeats as women’s lacrosse Player of the Week


Medaille University women’s lacrosse player Katelynn Deveans (Clinton) has picked up right where she left off last season.

For the second straight week, Deveans – a first-team all-league midfielder a year ago when she scored 59 goals as a freshman – on Monday was honored by the Empire 8 Conference, this time as Co-Player of the Week.

Deveans scored five goals and had two assists in Medaille’s 12-11 loss to Grove City College, and her six goals and one assist led the Mavericks to a 16-8 victory over Morrisville State. Medaille is off to a 2-1 start and Deveans leads the team in scoring with 17 goals and three assists.

In that loss to Medaille, SUNY Morrisville’s Aria Treadway (Rome/RFA) had two goals and four assists for the Mustangs.

Hailey Millington (Rome/RFA) scored three goals and her Clarkston University lacrosse team improved to 3-0 with Tuesday’s 20-6 win over SUNY Canton. Millington also had three of Clarkson’s program-record 25 goals in a 25-6 win over Potsdam State, and her four goals and one assist helped the Knights opened the season with a 15-11 victory over SUNY Oswego.

Madison Davis (Whitesboro) led Oswego with five goals and one assist in that loss to Clarkson, and her two goals and five assists helped the Lakers beat SUNY Canton 20-5.

Samantha DeCondo (Whitesboro) scored six goals in Utica University’s 20-0 win over SUNY Poly. Abigail Gerling (Whitesboro) added four goals and seven ground balls and Grace Stuhlman (Whitesboro) had two goals and two assists for the Pioneers, and the latter also scored twice in a 7-4 victory over SUNY New Paltz.

Kaitlin Kopcza (Whitesboro) scored five goals and Madison Bastien (Ilion/Central Valley Academy) had a goal and an assist in SUNY Poly’s 15-2 win over Wells College.

Le Moyne’s Roden swinging hot bat

Le Moyne College graduate student Dewey Roden (Sherrill/VVS) was named to the Northeast-10 Conference’s weekly baseball Honor Roll on Monday after going 13-for-29 with three home runs and 13 RBIs during a seven-game hitting streak.

Roden, a .362 hitter through Le Moyne’s first 12 games, slugged a three-run homer in a 9-5 win over Shippensburg University in the first game of Saturday’s doubleheader. He went 4 for 5 with a solo homer and four RBIs in the second game, but the Dolphins lost 12-11. Teammate Zach Brush (New York Mills) had two hits and an RBI in the opener.

Riley Brawdy (Rome/RFA) got his sophomore season with Ithaca College’s baseball team off to a promising start. The Bombers’ leadoff hitter homered in his first at bat and No. 19 Ithaca beat Immaculata University 16-8. Brawdy later went 3 for 6 with two RBIs in a 10-8, 11-inning win over Arcadia University and he drove in two more runs in a 10-3 win over Merchant Marine Academy.
