The Stories That Matter Most To The Utah Lacrosse Community

UPDATED: Epiphany Player of the Week: Week 3

Matt JungemannUPDATE: The nominees and results had been decided before the recent news of the passing of Juan Diego Defensemen Matt Jungemann. When Nick Carrigan found out he was the winner, he messaged me via twitter and said, “Thank you for this honorable title, however, I must defer. In my opinion Matt Jungemann should be named player of the week.” In honor of Matt and Nick’s classy move, Matt Jungemann has been named the Boys Week 3 Player of the Week. In addition, several fans have already nominated Matt and here is what they said:
As a gesture of support to Matt’s family, his teammates and classmates at Juan Diego, and for everyone involved in Utah boys lacrosse, I nominate Matt Jungemann, Juan Diego defenseman #40, for Player of the Week. – Marianne Bartman
In his memory, please honor this young man. My condolences to his family and friends. – Bonnie Wolff
The entire lacrosse community lost a dynamic and talented player. Please remember him in your prayers during this Holy Week. – Judge Head Coach Dave Allen
We lost a great friend, teammate and young man last night. It is unimaginable that Matt is gone, but in remembrance of every second he ever played on a lacrosse field I nominate this wonderful young man for Player of the Week.The sport and all of us who knew him will miss him dearly and forever. – Paige Pierce

Original Story:
The Week 3 winners of the Epiphany Lacrosse Player of the Week goes to Nick Carrigan from Brighton and Annie Glenn from Skyline.
Nick Carrigan – Brighton
Carrigan was nominated by several different people for his play on the field last week. Carrigan had a goal against Pleasant Grove as well as 4 groundballs and 3 caused turnovers in 2 games last week.
Brighton Head Coach Brandon Horoba said, “Nick is our LSM and he is really solid. He can get groundballs and has great, smooth stick work. He is vital to our success out there.”
Annie Glenn – Skyline
Annie Glenn - Skyline
Annie Glenn – Skyline
Glenn leads the team in goals and assists. In Skyline’s first 4 games (not including Best of the West or Gathering of the Tribes), even against powerhouses like Bingham and Alta, Glenn has 10 goals, 3 assists, 19 ground balls, 11 caused turnovers, and 22 draw controls.
Skyline Assistant Coach Melissa Baucom said, “I’ve never seen Annie have a bad game, or even a bad practice for that matter. She plays with everything she has in every drill, every sprint, every draw end especially every game. She has a good head on her shoulders and not only is she an amazing player, she is a smart player. Annie comes up HUGE on the draws. Her draw control abilities are astounding. She gets the ball to herself or if needed, will direct it to anyone on the circle. Her smooth stick skills, left hand skills, and incredible shot placement really set her apart from other players in the state. Annie is the most coachable player and will do whatever asked of her. She is a Skyline’s team leader on and off the field, always supporting her teammates and helping them look better. And what’s even more amazing, Annie is the least selfish player you’ll see in Utah. She is always looking for assists to make her teammates look good and never tries to boost her own stats.”
Congrats to Nick and Annie! Don’t forget to nominate a player of the week each week of the season by filling out the form here.
