ATLANTA – Palm Beach Atlantic locked up the top seed in the SELC Southeast division with a win over its biggest rival, led by the play of rookie midfielder Christian Corbin. For his efforts, Corbin earned MCLA Division II Commanding Performance of the Week powered by Under Armour for the period ending April 17.
With divisional supremacy on the line against archrival Florida Gulf Coast, Corbin scored three goals and set up two others for a game-high five points. The Bowie, Md., product’s last assist of the day set up the game-winning goal in the Sailfish’s 9-8 victory over the Eagles.
Palm Beach Atlantic now enters the SELC tournament as a No. 1 seed and will face Reinhardt in the quarterfinals on Friday.
"Christian is one of the most humble, coachable players I've ever coached,” said PBA coach Chris Southard. “He embodies the culture of Palm Beach Atlantic. He is an incredible man whose value on the lacrosse field is superseded by his faith and his value as a leader of this team."
For his efforts in earning the Commanding Performance of the Week powered by Under Armour, Corbin will receive a new Under Armour Command Head. Under Armour is the proud sponsor of the MCLA.
