COLLEGE STATION -- For the third time this season, senior forward Ashlee Pistorius was named the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week, the conference office announced today.
Pistorius was a dominating force in the Aggies’ Big 12 regular season finale victory over Baylor on Friday. The All-American not only recorded her sixth career hat-trick against the Lady Bears, Pistorius added a fourth goal in the match to tie Bryn Blalack as A&M’s all-time leader in goals scored (79).
Pistorius also posted a season-best in the game, notching her 23rd goal, beating her previous mark of 22 set in 2005. It was the second time in Pistorius’ career that she was able to net four goals against Baylor, having accomplished the feat in 2005, as well.
Friday’s four goals gives Pistorius the national lead in goals scored this season (23). The Bloomington, Ill. native is averaging 1.21 goals per game and 2.74 points per game, another nation’s-best.
