Caitlin Van Sickle '08 Named ACC Player of the Week

North Carolina junior Caitlin Van Sickle was honored by the Atlantic Coast Conference as Player of the Week following her performance against top-ranked Old Dominion in the October 30 game. Van Sickle scored the game-winning goal less than two minutes into overtime as second-ranked North Carolina won 3-2. She also scored on UNC’s second penalty corner of the extra period and assisted on the first goal of the game for UNC. She leads the team with nine assists and three defensive saves.

After the Tarheel's win over Duke this weekend, UNC claimed the 2011 Atlantic Coast Conference Field Hockey Championship, their first since 2007 and 17th in program history.
