Foxboro sophomore Sophia DiCenso has been selected as the Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for May 1st through May 6th. DiCenso is the 29th athlete selected for the 2016-2017 school year and the fifth selection during the spring season. She is the second girls’ lacrosse player and fourth Foxboro athlete to be selected this school year.

DiCenso, the reigning Underclassman of the Year for girls’ lacrosse, has been one of the top scorers for the Davenport-leading Warriors with 31 goals and 17 assists after this week, which was good for second on the team in goals and points.

This week, the University of Richmond-commit reached an individual milestone with six goals in a win against Hingham on Monday. DiCenso scored the overtime winner to beat the Harborwomen and in the process recorder her 100th career goal in just her second season for the Warriors.

“Soph is one of the hardest workers I’ve ever coached,” said Foxboro coach Brittany Sherry. “She’s such a selfless player, always making herself and her teammates better.”

Sherry added, “In just two years she has improved immensely and continues to grow as a student-athlete.”


On Wednesday, the Warriors edged Sharon 13-12 and put themselves two games ahead of North Attleboro in the race for the Davenport division title with only four league games remaining. DiCenso was also selected to the Lower New England (LNE) second team for the U.S. Lacrosse National Tournament, which is a showcase for the best players from around the country.

The Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, is selected by the staff. Nominations can be submitted throughout the week up until Saturday night at midnight. There may be a poll posted on every Sunday with the nominations. The results of the poll influence the selection but do not strictly dictate the decision.
