BLOOMINGTON, Ill. – Minutes after being named the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin Players of the Week, Illinois Wesleyan University men’s lacrosse’s Carson Kiichle (Vancouver, Wash.-Skyview) and Nick Schroeder (Waunakee, Wis.-Waunakee) reeled USILA Team of the Week.
The duo led IWU to a 3-0 week, which included wins over Benedictine University (19-10), Milwaukee School of Engineering (30-4), and Whittier College (16-15 OT).
Kiichle led the offensive firepower of the Titans, scoring 12 goals and assisting on 10 others, over the three-games stretch. He finished with 22 points, posting nine-point efforts at Benedictine and against Whitier. Kiichle added 12 ground balls and a pair of caused turnovers.
Schroeder, who missed the first two games of the season, made the most of his opportunities at the X. He went 65-for-81 in faceoffs, good for a clip of 80.2 percent, while scooping up a team-best 35 ground balls. He added a goal in IWU’s win over MSOE. Schroeder went an impressive 16-for-17 against MSOE and then 31-of-35 versus Whittier.
The Titans head out east for their spring break trip beginning with a stop at Dickinson College Saturday, March 11. Game time is scheduled for 12 p.m. ET in Carlisle, Pa.
