For the second time this season, Liberty's Michaela Rich has been named the Big South Lacrosse Freshman of the Week. Rich also earned the honor on Feb. 25 after tallying her first career hat trick in a win over Elon.

Rich registered one of her strongest games of the season this past Saturday in Liberty's narrow 10-9 setback at Robert Morris. The freshman tallied two goals on just three shots, while also adding an assist. It was Rich's second multiple-goal and three-point game of the season. The attacker matched her season high with two ground balls and notched the first caused turnover of her career. For the season, Rich ranks fourth on the team in goals (9) and fifth in points (11). 

Rich and the rest of the Lady Flames return to the field on April 2 at Virginia Tech. Game time against the Hokies is scheduled for 4 p.m.
