Mount Union's Bernardi Named OAC Women's Lacrosse Offensive Player of the Week

AUSTINTOWN, Ohio -- Mount Union senior Ashley Bernardi (Medina) was named Ohio Athletic Conference Women's Lacrosse Offensive Player of the Week after leading the Purple Raiders to a pair of wins last week.

For the week Bernardi tallied seven goals and 10 assists last week. She had three goals and three assists in a 14-8 home win over NCAA Division II Walsh last Wednesday then came back with four goals and seven assists in a 16-2 OAC win at Ohio Northern this past Saturday.

Bernardi's 17 points last week also made her Mount Union's all-time points leader with now 266 points (171 goals and 95 assists) in her three plus seasons with the Raiders. The previous record was held by Susie Kraus, who had 255 total points from 2013-16.

Mount Union, 8-1 overall and 2-0 in OAC games, has won seven games in a row and the Raiders host a pair of conference games this week against Muskingum on Wednesday and Marietta on Saturday. Both games will start at 7 p.m. at Mount Union Stadium.
