Ashley Bastinelli Named ALC Player of the Week 3/5/02

Vanderbilt freshman Ashley Bastinelli (Lutherville, Maryland) was named the Player-of-the-Week Tuesday by the American Lacrosse Conference.

In her first two collegiate starts, Bastinelli made 27 saves while allowing only ten goals for an impressive save percentage of 73 percent. She led the Commodores to upset victories over conference rivals Johns Hopkins and Penn State.

Bastinelli played high school lacrosse at the Friends School of Baltimore, where she was a four year letterwinner. She is the first ever Player-of-the-Week in the American Lacrosse Conference, which began play this spring.

"I was extremely surprised and honored. I feel very fortunate to be apart of such a hard-working and supportive team," said Bastinelli. "I think we have a bright future ahead of us and hope I can continue to contribute to our success."

"Ashley's honor is well-deserved," added Vanderbilt Head Coach Cathy Swezey. "She is just beginning what I expect will be a very successful career at Vanderbilt."
