Charlie Rudy was named the USA Lacrosse Magazine DI Women's Player of the Week

SPARKS, Md. – Colorado senior attacker Charlie Rudy helped the CU lacrosse team to a pair of wins last week and for those performances, she has been tabbed the USA Lacrosse Magazine Division I Women's Player of the Week.
Rudy recorded eight goals and two assists in those games in Boulder, which helped Colorado improve to 5-0 on the season.

In the first contest against then-No. 16 Vanderbilt on March 4, Rudy recorded three goals and two assists for five points. She was 1-1 on free-position goals and added two ground balls and one caused turnover as Colorado earned an 18-11 victory over the Commodores.
In the second game of the weekend on March 6 against UC Davis, Rudy again scored five points, but this time it was all goals. She scored four of CU's five goals in the first quarter, putting the Buffs up 5-1 as they went into the second frame against the Aggies. Her fifth goal was in the last minute of the first half, which gave the Buffs a 12-4 advantage at halftime. Rudy was 2-3 on free-position attempts in the game and added one draw control.
With three goals against Vanderbilt and five versus UC Davis, she now has 21 games with three or more goals, which is the fourth-most in school history. She also recorded a man-up goal in each game and now has 13 career man-up goals; one shy of the CU record (14).
Colorado entered the national rankings this week heading into Pac-12 play. CU is 19th in the USA Lacrosse Magazine Poll and is 23rd in the IL Women/IWLCA DI Coaches Poll. The Buffs head out on the road to face No. 17 Southern California on March 11 and Arizona State on March 13.
