Under the Radar Mid Excelling in Women’s LAX

We tend to hear a lot when a Navy football or men’s basketball player wins an award, so it goes without saying that other athletes competing in sports for the Academy deserve the same respect.

Loren Generi is a huge part of the Navy women’s lacrosse team which has started the season 8-1 and which is currently riding a six game winning streak. Generi has been so integral to the team that she just picked up her fifth consecutive Patriot League Midfield Player of the week laurel. This makes her just the second player in the history of Patriot League Women’s Lacrosse to win any weekly award five consecutive times. Ironically she joins Navy alum, and former teammate Jasmine DePompeo who won five straight Offensive Player of the Week honors in 2013.

Generi has been an absolute force of nature on the lacrosse field in 2015. In the Mids recent 21-4 (yes you read that score right) win over Bucknell she recorded a game high eight points with six goals and two assists. This extended her current streak of games with at least one goal to 19 and has scored at least two points with one goal and one assist in each of Navy’s nine games this spring.

It will be no shock to anyone then to find out that Generi leads the conference in just about every statistical category which matters. She is top of the pile in points per game (5.13), goals per game (3.13) and assists per game (2). She is also on the top of the leaderboard in draw controls per game. Those numbers don’t just stack up in the Patriot League either. Generi is fourth in the entire nation in points and draw controls per game, while being 14th in goals and 15th in assists per game also.

A game against American this week will see Generi aiming to extend her streak and write more chapters in her growing legacy. The best part though is that Generi is just one player on a team which is causing some serious noise this season. Navy may have a dominant athlete like Keenan Reynolds on campus, but it is hard to argue at this point that there is any Mid more dominant in his or her sport than Loren Generi.
