AUSTINTOWN, Ohio – For the third time this season, the Ohio Athletic Conference has named Brennan O'Callaghan the Men's Lacrosse Offensive Player of the Week.

Senior Brennan O'Callaghan (West Chester, Ohio/Lakota West) had a spectacular week in which he scored a total of 14 goals and tallied five assists, which totaled for 19 points in a pair of wins for the Crusaders. He tied his own school record for goals in a goal twice by scoring seven goals in the team's wins over Muskingum University and the University of Mount Union. He ended the week with a shooting percentage of .438 and of his 32 shot attempts, 71.9 percent of those were on goal.

In Capital's 24-3 win over Muskingum, O'Callaghan scored seven times and added three assists while collecting one ground ball and causing one turnover. In a home win over Mount Union, O'Callaghan added another seven and then chipped in two helpers as part of a 19-6 victory.

O'Callaghan now has 49 goals and 15 assists this season and is just three points away from hitting 300 in his career. He now has seven OAC Player of the Week awards over the course of his career.
