Flamholz Concludes Career as All-Time Leader in Assists

April 30, 2007 

ST. MARY'S CITY, MD — Two student-athletes from Goucher — a senior attackman on the men's lacrosse team and a junior on the men's tennis team — were selected Players of the Week for their respective sports today by the Capital Athletic Confererence.

According to a release issued by the conference's assistant commissioner for communications, Dan Flamholz (Baltimore, MD/Park School) beat out three other nominees for Player of the Week honors for men's lacrosse and Chris Covey (Exeter, NH/Exeter) was the player honored for men's tennis.

For both players, the award covers the week of April 23-29.

In the final two games of his four-year career, Flamholz supplied the Gophers with four goals and an equal number of assists. He will graduate as the school's all-time leader in career assists (103) and in the top three in career points (195) behind Phil Anthony (1999-2002) and Tim Asher (1996-99).

The Gophers defeated Moravian, 8-2, and St. Vincent, 13-8, to conclude the season with a 9-8 record.

Covey won two times at singles play at No. 4 and twice in doubles play at No. 2 to be recognized as the week's top performer in men's tennis. By knocking off Villa Julie's Doug Ammon 6-1, ret., and Juniata's Aaron Rhodes 7-5, 6-4, he finished a perfect 8-0 at fourth singles in 2006-07.

Covey's overall record in singles play this season was 10-8.
