Forest, Va. -- After a breakout weekend, Lynchburg College field hockey freshman Jackie Lerro (Royersford, Pa.) reaped the benefit in the form of the Old Dominion Athletic Conference's Player of the Week award.

Lerro scored five goals in a road trip to her home state of Pennsylvania over the weekend, one in a 3-1 victory over No. 18 Alvernia and four in a 5-1 dispatching of Albright.

She is one of just 11 women in NCAA field hockey to score four or more goals in a game this season and just the second Hornet to notch the feat this decade, matching Nikki Simpao's four-goal game on Sept. 24, 2016 against Virginia Wesleyan.

Lerro is tied for second in the ODAC in goals scored.
