Cheng, Groeninger, McLean Earn Player of the Week Honors

Justin Cheng, Kevin Groeninger, and AJ McLean were named the boys’ lacrosse Players of the Week by the MaxLax staff.  All three had game-changing performances last week.

Cheng, a senior defenseman,  had a dominant game in Beckman’s  11-6 win over Mater Dei last Tuesday.  He caused six turnovers and picked up six ground balls for the Patriots. His performance was crucial in disrupting Mater Dei’s offense.

Groeninger, a junior attackman, continues to spearhead a dynamic and explosive St. Margaret’s offense, which shows no signs of slowing down. In the Tartans’ two games last week, Groeninger netted two goals against Santa Margarita and poured in a season-high eight goals against then-undefeated Faith Lutheran from Las Vegas.

McLean, a senior attackman, helped Edison go 2-0 with 12 total points last week.  He had four goals in a 13-5 win over El Dorado and then bettered that with a five-goal, three assist outing against Marina.
