Islander Daniel Shields, a senior playing lacrosse at the University of Mount Olive, has been named Conference Carolinas Men’s Lacrosse Player of the Week, the University of Mount Olive posted on its website yesterday.

Daniel Shields, who helped University of Mount Olive outscore its opponents 43-9 in a pair of wins last week, has been named Conference Carolinas Men’s Lacrosse Player of the Week. The award is Shields’ first this season.

A senior attack from Mercer Island, Wash., scored nine goals in two games as the Trojans posted a pair of 17-goal wins. In Mount Olive’s 20-3 victory over Alderson-Broaddus, Shields scored the first goal of the game and three of his five goals during a run that gave the Trojans a 16-0 lead. He added four goals in the Trojans’ 23-6 win over Ohio Valley. Shields had a goal and an assist during a 10-0 run that broke a 2-2 first period tie.

For the season, Shields is tied with his brother, Matt, for the team lead with 23 goals. He also has eight assists for 31 points.”
