Rich nets Conference Carolinas Player of the Week honors

HIGH POINT, N.C. --- Lees-McRae College forward Vickie Rich (Arlington Heights, Ill.) has been named the Conference Carolinas women's soccer Player of the Week, announced the league office Tuesday. Rich netted a pair of match-winners against Mars Hill College and Limestone College to lead the Lady Bobcats to their third straight victory.

The junior forward has found the back of the net in each of the last three matches, tallying the deciding strike in each of those contests to enter the week tied for the team- and conference-lead with three goals and seven points on the season. Rich has tallied each of the Lady Bobcats' (3-1, 1-0 CC) three match-winners this year, leading the team and conference in that category.

Lees-McRae returns to the pitch on Tuesday afternoon when the Lady Bobcats square off against Belmont Abbey College in Belmont, N.C. to resume conference play. The match is scheduled to kick off at 2 p.m.
