THOMASVILLE, NC--Conference Carolinas announced that Berin Boracic has claimed this week's NCAA Division II Conference Carolinas Player of the Week award. The award is the third time this season that the Orlando, FL native has been honored as the Conference Player of the Week.

Boracic regained the Conference Carolinas scoring lead this past week, scoring a pair of goals and adding an assist in two games. Against #13 Lander, Boracic assisted on the Bobcats opening goal in a 3-1 win, while scoring a pair, including his third game winning goal of the season, in a 3-2 conference win over rival Pfeiffer. The junior now leads Conference Carolinas with 34 points, one shy of his single season career high set last year.

The Bobcats stand at 13-1-1 overall and will match up with Chowan College on the road in their season finale before the Conference Carolinas Tournament.
