This time, senior forward Brittany Casey earned the honor after helping the Lady Hawks to a pair of road wins at Bellarmine and McKendree. Casey scored two goals, giving her a team-leading five goals on the season and tying her for second in goals in the GLVC.

Last week, QU midfielder Jaclyn Mastroianni was honored by the GLVC.
