Annie Walsh, Franklin Lacrosse, Player of the Week

"Franklin sophomore Annie Walsh has been selected as the Hockomock Sports .com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for May 29th through June 3rd. Walsh is the 33rd selection for the 2016-2017 school year and the ninth during the spring season. 
She is the first athlete to win Player of the Week two times in one school year after being selected for field hockey in October. She is also the second Franklin girls lacrosse player to be selected this spring, following goalie Gianna Cameron. 
Walsh played a huge role in Franklin’s quarterfinal win over Natick, orchestrating a big second half comeback to hand the Panthers a 18-10 win. Natick held 7-6 lead over the top-seeded Panthers at halftime, but Walsh scored an impressive seven of her nine goals in the second half to lead Franklin back. 
“Annie was clutch for us in our first playoff game against Natick,” said Franklin head coach Kristin Igoe Guarino. “Her defensive and midfield play was just as important as her finishing on the offensive end! She has worked extremely hard this season and has done a really nice job at getting better and improving with each game.”
