FOREST – Senior women’s lacrosse co-captain Liz Bereit has been named ODAC Player of the Week in selections announced Monday afternoon by the league office.
Bereit, who leads SU with 47 goals and 18 assists for 65 points, had seven goals and five assists last week as the Hornets defeated Bridgewater and Virginia Wesleyan in a pair of ODAC contests.
After scoring a goal and three assists in a 10-9 win at Bridgewater on Wednesday, Bereit had six goals and two assists in the Hornets 17-16 victory at VWC Saturday.
Her final assist in the Virginia Wesleyan came with three seconds remaining in regulation to send the game in overtime and then she tallied the game-winning goal with 65 seconds remaining in the OT.
This is the second time this season, and fourth time in her career, that she has earned ODAC Player of the Week honors.
Bereit and the Hornets complete their regular season on Wednesday with a 4 p.m. ODAC game at Randolph-Macon. The winner of that game earns the No. 2 seed and accompanying bye into the tournament semifinals.
