LEXINGTON, Va. - Junior lacrosse goalkeeper goalkeeper Matt Lindemann has been named the VMI Athlete of the Week for the period ending May 4.  Lindemann helped the Keydets to a wire-to-wire 8-7 victory over Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference preseason favorite University of Detroit Mercy in the Keydets’ season finale.

Lindemann, who is the third lacrosse player to earn the honor this season, joining freshman attacker Mike DeBlasio and senior face-off specialist Stephen Robarge, made 17 saves against the Titans, including several big time stops down the stretch to preserve the victory. The 6-5 Lindemann posted his sixth game with at least 10 saves of the season, having played in the back half of the schedule. Lindemann finished with the program’s best save percentage (59.9) since the 2000 season.
