Senior Captain Shelly Milks Named ODAC Player of the Week
FOREST, VA – The first Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Player of the Week awards have been announced and Lynchburg College midfielder Shelly Milks received the field hockey honor.
Milks picked up her second career hat trick in the season-opening win over Frostburg State, propelling her team to a 9-2 victory. She took 12 shots in the game, keeping the Bobcat defense on edge.
The senior from Gloucester, Virginia followed it up with a stellar game against Depauw. Milks helped anchor a defense that held the Tigers, a team that averaged nearly four goals a game in 2011, scoreless in the second period to preserve a 3-2 win.
#7 Lynchburg College (2-0) travels to the University of Mary Washington on Saturday, September 8 for a game at 2 p.m.
