Calvert Named Player of the Week

Thomasville, NC--Lees-McRae Lady Bobcats soccer player Christine Calvert has been selected as the NCAA Division II Conference Carolinas women's soccer Player of the Week during week number two in the 2007 season. Calvert led the Lady Bobcats to a 2-0 record last week, scoring three goals and one assist.

Calvert, a junior captain, rallied the troops for a 7-0 road win at Trinity Washington to get the Lady Bobcats in the win column after starting the season 0-3. A few days later, the Dallas, TX native truly took control of the game with the Lady Bobcats trailing 2-1 to Erskine in Conference Carolinas action. Calvert assisted on the tying goal before scoring the game winner herself, as well as adding an insurance goal to seal the Lady Bobcats second straight win.
