Sullivan tabbed Conference Carolinas Player of the Week

HIGH POINT, N.C. --- Lees-McRae College sophomore MaryBeth Sullivan (Greensboro, N.C.) has been named the Conference Carolinas women's soccer Player of the Week for the first time this season, announced league officials Tuesday.

MaryBeth Sullivan led the Bobcats to a pair of 1-0 victories over two of the top teams in the conference and the region last week, scoring the match-winner in each contest. The sophomore forward opened the week with a brilliant strike on Wednesday, netting the winner against Belmont Abbey early in the first half.

The Greensboro, N.C. native then delivered the deciding strike on Saturday against Mount Olive, taking a touch-pass from Emily Jones (Leonardtown, Md.) following a cross from her sister, LeeAnn Sullivan (Greensboro, N.C.), before sending a driving strike into the top corner for the eventual winner. The 5-7 forward currently leads the Bobcats with 10 goals, 22 points, and four match-winners. The Bobcats currently are 9-0 in league play and 10-2-1 overall.

Lees-McRae returns to the pitch on Wednesday when the Bobcats host Erskine College in a conference matchup at Tate Field. The match is slated to kick off at 5 p.m. following the Bobcats' senior night festivities.
