ATLANTA – After helping Georgia Tech post a hard-fought 1-1 weekend in the Rockies, Yellow Jackets senior midfielder Holland Frost has earned MCLA Division I Commanding Performance of the Week powered by Under Armour for the period ending April 2.
In the Ramblin’ Wrecks setback to No. 5 Colorado, the Marietta, Ga., native did all he could by scoring two goals and dishing out two assists while winning 13-of-18 faceoffs and grabbing seven ground balls.
Georgia Tech bounced back on Saturday evening with a 12-11 overtime victory against No. 10 Colorado State and Frost was once again the catalyst. He scored four goals and dished out an assist along with a perfect 8-for-8 on faceoffs and another seven GBs.
For the weekend, he had six goals, three assists, 14 ground balls and a 21-for-26 performance (80.8%) at the dot.
"We rely heavily on Holland for his strong faceoff play to gain possession for us while also helping to lead our offense,” said Georgia Tech coach Ken Lovic. “Holland has been a huge component for our team the past four years. This weekend was no exception in a very tough back-to-back series against two tough opponents.”
For his efforts in earning the Commanding Performance of the Week powered by Under Armour, Frost will receive a new Under Armour Command Head – a $100 value. Under Armour is the proud sponsor of the MCLA.
