Each week, The Baltimore Sun publishes a Q&A with a college lacrosse player or coach to get you more acquainted with the player and his/her team. Today's guest is Towson fifth-year senior goalkeeper Andrew Wascavage, who entered the week ranked fourth in Division I in saves per game (13.8), fifth in save percentage (.608) and 19th in goals-against average (8.79). A St. Mary's Ryken graduate, Wascavage has made double-digit saves in every game so far and has made at least 10 saves in 12 straight contests dating to last May 2. He has been instrumental in helping power the Tigers to their first three-game winning streak, which has lifted them above .500 for the first time this season.

Those trips were nice, but coach Kevin Corrigan said he doesn't want his players banking on the past. “I want them to be completely present in the now, and that means for each of them, they need to bring their experiences and everything they've done until now to the present time,” he said.
