BRIDGEPORT, Pa. -- MaryEllen Spooner (So., Springfield, Va./West Springfield) of Pennsylvania State University-Erie, the Behrend College scored nine times, grabbed seven steals and drew four kickouts at the PSU-Behrend Invitational to earn the March 28 Women's Varsity Division III Player of the Week award.

She tallied a second period goal versus Gannon University (13-3 L), before tacking on a pair of fourth period markers against Division III rival Chatham University (11-7 L) in a non-division game.  Facing current NAIA member and future Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) institution Notre Dame College (Ohio), she tied the PSU-Behrend school record with six goals in a 14-8 loss.  Overall, she registered a first period hat-trick against the Falcons, before chipping in a solo marker in the second period and a pair in the third to account for two-thirds of the Behrend Lions' offense against Notre Dame.

March 28 Women's Division III Player of the Week Honor Roll: Chelsea Johnson (Grove City College), Lauren Burrows (Chatham University)
