Bereit helped the Hornets to ODAC wins over Randolph-Macon, 9-7, and Virginia Wesleyan, 17-3, with a total of six goals and seven assists for 13 points.

She had three goals and four assists in the first half of that Virginia Wesleyan game to help SU out to an 11-1 halftime advantage.

She added three groundballs, six draw controls and six caused turnovers to help coach Lindsey Lutz’ club extend its winning streak to five games.

This is Bereit’s first-ever ODAC weekly honor.

Shenandoah is back in action Tuesday night at 7 p.m., in an ODAC contest at Randolph.


FOREST — Shenandoah senior Vince Claudio has been named ODAC Pitcher of the Week in selections announced Monday afternoon by the league office.

Claudio earns his second ODAC weekly award of the season after defeating both Frostburg State and Virginia Wesleyan this past week.
