DENVER – Senior Ellie Curry and sophomore Emelia Bohi of the Denver Pioneers women’s lacrosse team earned conference weekly honors on Monday as Curry was named the Big East’s Midfielder of the Week and Bohi was chosen as the Defensive Player of the Week.
The Pioneers completed an undefeated regular season and improved to 17-0 on the campaign on Saturday as they defeated then-No. 24 Marquette 12-5 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. DU earned its fourth-straight Big East regular-season championship with the win.
Curry picked up her sixth Big East Midfielder of the Week award of the season after scoring twice against Marquette. It was her 10th multi-goal game of 2023, and she extended her career-long point streak to 12 games.
The Lutherville, Maryland, native ranks tied for second on the team in points (39) and is third in goals (27) and assists (12). Curry also has 20 ground balls and 15 caused turnovers.
Bohi made 10 saves versus the Golden Eagles, the nation’s third-best offense entering the contest, and only allowed five goals—MU’s lowest output of the year. Marquette only found the back of the net once in the second half in the outing, as Bohi also added two ground balls to go with her double-digit stops—the second-most of her career (12 saves at Colorado, Feb 18, 2023).
The Bethesda, Maryland, native leads the nation in wins (17) and goals-against average (5.99) and ranks sixth in the NCAA with a .524 save percentage. This is her second Defensive Player of the Week accolade of the season (Feb. 13) and the third of her career (also Feb. 21, 2022).
Sophomore attacker Lauren Black was also recognized as a member of the Big East’s Weekly Honor Roll list. She had four points on three goals and one assist against the Golden Eagles, scoring her fifth hat trick of the season and extending her goal streak to nine games in a row.
UP NEXT: The Pioneers begin postseason play on Friday as they face the Villanova Wildcats in the Big East Tournament Semifinals at 2 p.m. MT in Storrs, Connecticut. The conference championship game is set for Sunday at 10 a.m. MT in Storrs.
