The rookie led the Mariners with 10 draw controls and eight caused turnovers on the week and also picked up seven groundballs. Parker leads the Skyline Conference with 2.40 caused turnovers per game.
 
Willard recorded eight points (seven goals and one assist) over the two games. She scored twice and added an assist on Tuesday, before adding a season-high five goals against Sage on Saturday.
