Athlete of the Week

Emilie Vanneste

The sophomore midfielder on the lacrosse team has been a big contributor to the team's success. A native of St. Petersburg, Florida, led the team with five goals, two assists, five ground balls, and two caused turnovers in the Belles' 14-2 win over Illinois Tech last week. She added a goal and two assists against John Carroll last Saturday while leading the team this season in goals, assists, and points.

Congratulations, Emilie!
