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

AUSTINTOWN, Ohio -- Mount Union sophomore Sydney Bumbarger (Newbury Park, Calif.) was named Ohio Athletic Conference Women's Lacrosse Offensive Player of the Week.

Bumbarger had three goals and two assists in a pair of Mount Union wins last week but one of those goals was a significant one as her score in the closing seconds against Capital gave the Purple Raiders a 10-9 victory for the OAC regular season title. She finished that game with two goals and an assist as Mount Union rallied from a four goal deficit over the final 15 minutes.

On the season, Bumbarger is third on the squad with 45 goals and 58 points.

Mount Union hosts John Carroll in a semifinal game of the OAC Tournament Wednesday, May 1 at 7 p.m. in Mount Union Stadium.
