The GoBonnies.com Athlete of the Week presented by CPL for the week ending May 2 is men's lacrosse redshirt sophomore Nick Slattery.
Slattery scored two goals in St. Bonaventure’s MAAC quarterfinal victory over Detroit Mercy, 11-8, April 30, doubling his season total. He had an outstanding game, also adding an assist for three total points.
He had perhaps the game’s most important goal. After Detroit had rallied from a 5-1 deficit to tie the game, 5-5, Slattery scored unassisted with 8:27 left in the third to break the tie and put the Bonnies back in front. It broke a scoreless drought of over a quarter for the Bonnies and gave them back momentum.
The midfielder from Irondequoit, N.Y. has played in seven games in his first season with the program.
