MILWAUKEE – Sophomore Ashley Welk of Marian University women’s soccer has been selected as the NACC offensive player of the week, as voted on by the sports information directors of the league.

Welk (Mount Prospect, Ill.) posted her first multi-goal game of the season to lead Marian past Wisconsin Lutheran 2-0 in their first home game of the season. She scored her first goal in the 19th minute unassisted, then found the back of the net in the 66th off an assist from freshman Lillian Giron. Welk now has three goals through four games this season and has scored 17 times in just 22 career games.
