Louisville, Ky. -- University of Lynchburg freshman Josiah Martin (Lynchburg, Va.) became the third Hornet men's lacrosse player of the season to earn the D3 Team of the Week honor Tuesday from the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association.
Martin, a midfielder, was one of 10 players to earn a spot on the USILA's final weekly honor roll of the season. He helped 19th-ranked Lynchburg reach the Old Dominion Athletic Conference tournament title game for the sixth-straight season and assisted the Hornets in earning an at-large berth to the NCAA Division III tournament.
Martin began the tournament with three caused turnovers and a ground ball in the Hornets' 20-11 elimination of Hampden-Sydney in the semifinal round, and he followed that with a goal, an assist and two ground balls in Lynchburg's loss to then-No. 17 Washington and Lee in the championship game.
He has appeared in 18 games this season and become a key part of the Hornets' defensive midfield as the year has progressed. Martin has seven goals and two assists for Lynchburg this year to go with 13 ground balls and five caused turnovers.
Lynchburg (13-6) will begin its 2019 NCAA tournament run with a 6 p.m. home contest against Transylvania (14-4) Wednesday, May 8.
