Athletes are considered for the weekly top performer poll only if their stats are entered on the MN Lacrosse Hub by 10 a.m. on Sundays. If coaches or members of their staffs need access to enter stats, please email mnhubs@sportngin.com.

Top Performer winner

Riley Bachinski, Prior Lake. The senior had two four-goal games for Prior Lake, ranked No. 5 in the state coaches' poll, which finished the week with a 3-0 record. His best tally came on May 11 at Mahtomedi, where he scored four goals and notched two assists in a 13-2 win.

Top performer candidates

Henry Claridge, Mounds View. Claridge racked up 12 points in two games last week. He went for a season-high seven goals as Mounds View downed Roseville 14-7 on May 6. He scored another four and recorded an assist three days later in a 7-5 win over Park of Cottage Grove. The junior's 29 goals this season rank fifth in the state. 

Duncan Fleming, TrIMAC. Fleming's five goals and four assists caused the Southwest Christian defense trouble on May 6, but his team fell short 15-14 in the tight contest. The junior is averaging nearly three goals per game for the Blackhawks. 

Indie Jacobs, Mankato. Through three games last week, Jacobs posted a .672 save percentage — totaling 39 saves — and guided Mankato to a 2-1 record. His best night came against Owatonna on May 7, when he stopped 14 of 19 shots in Mankato's 10-5 victory. He is among the leaders in goaltender wins in the state with six.

Thomas Purfeerst, Rosemount. The No. 10 Rosemount squad was given a boost by Purfeerst scoring his second hat trick of the week in a 13-8 victory over Eastview on May 10. Three days earlier, he scored three goals and tallied one assist in a 10-5 loss to Prior Lake.
