Lenoir-Rhyne’s Hansson Wins SAC Women’s Soccer Player of the Week Award

The South Atlantic Conference announced its Women’s Soccer Players of the Week for matches played during the ninth week of the 2022 season and the Bears Elin Hansson was selected as the offensive player of the week as the forward from Halmstad, Sweden scored a goal and added an assist in the Bears win at Newberry on Saturday.

This is Hansson’s second SAC offensive player of the week award this season as the freshman has been red-hot for the Bears scoring at least goal in four straight games and has nine goals in her first year here in Hickory. Hansson’s performance is one reason the Bears are tied for first place in the SAC with one game remaining at home on Wednesday.
