Last week Syracuse Orange fans selected Justyn Knight as the TNIAAM Athlete of the Week. Who will you pick this week? Let's meet the candidates:
Alma Fenne- Field Hockey
Alma notched the winning goal on Saturday as Syracuse defeated the Duke Blue Devils and finished an unbeaten regular season. The #1 ranked Orange will be the top seed in the ACC Tournament and will receive a bye next weekend.

Sheridan Street- W. Soccer
Sheridan's goal on Sunday led the Orange to a 1-0 victory over the Wake Forest Demon Deacons to their 3rd straight ACC win. Syracuse will finish the regular season next Saturday with a home contest against Clemson.
Louis Cross- M. Soccer
If you're seeing a pattern with this week's candidates, you can probably guess that Louis is the soccer nominee because he scored a game-winning goal for the Orange. His late goal on Friday evening gave the # 15 ranked Syracuse squad a 2-1 win over the NC State Wolfpack. Syracuse finishes the regular-season on Friday with an #OrangeEagle Trophy match-up at the Boston College Eagles.
Mary Malone- W. Cross Country
Mary won the women's 5k race at the John Reif Memorial Invite with a time of 17:39, which was 24 seconds faster than she ran last year at the meet. Syracuse will be looking to improve on last year's 8th place finish at this Friday's ACC Championship meet.

Juris Silenieks- M. Cross Country
Juris took 1st in the men's 8k at the John Reif meet with a time of 24:33 for the 8k course. The senior will be part of the Orange men's XC team, which will be looking for their 3rd straight ACC title on Friday.
Stephanie Grossi- W. Ice Hockey
Stephanie tied a Syracuse record with 5 points on 3 goals and two assists last week in a 7-1 win over the RIT Tigers. She leads with 12 points so far on the season and will look to add to that total when Syracuse travels to Robert Morris this weekend.

Gosia Wlaszczuk- Volleyball
Gosia led the Orange in assists during games against Miami and Florida State over the weekend. While they dropped both games, Syracuse remains 6-4 in ACC play this Fall and Gosia is the team leader in assists, which is good for 9th in the ACC. SU will be back in action at home on Friday against Georgia Tech.
