This week’s Alpha Lacrosse male player of the week is Ryder Garnsey of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. With a dominating 46% of the vote this week, the junior attacker helped lift his team to victory over Duke in the ACC semi-final. He followed up his stellar semi-final performance, with a championship effort over Virginia, registering three goals and two assists as Notre Dame took the ACC crown.

Notre Dame, now ranked eighth overall with their ACC achievements look to carry this momentum into the NCAA Lacrosse tournament, where they will be met with stiff competition, including last year’s national champion, Maryland.

The Fighting Irish will lean on their star junior to continue his 2018 dominance. You can follow Ryder on Instagram @rsgarnz, and for all your NCAA Lacrosse tips, updates and highlights, visit our website at, or follow us on Instagram @alphalacrosse.
