Veilleux Nets Bobcat Athlete of the Week

MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – Sophomore Ashley Veilleux (Monroe, Ga.) of the Georgia College soccer team (10-7-1) was named Bobcat Athlete of the Week for the week ending Oct. 28.

Veilleux scored twice and added an assist as Georgia College won their final two conference games last week to clinch a spot in the PBC Tournament.

The sophomore first collected an assist as the Bobcats downed Georgia Southwestern 2-0, then she scored both goals as GC locked up a seed with a 2-0 win over Flagler.  Veilleux is now tied for fifth in the Peach Belt Conference (PBC) with nine goals on the season.  She is also fifth in total points.

The Bobcats are back in action tonight, Oct. 30 at Columbus State University in the quarterfinal round of the PBC Tournament.
