BIG EAST Release

Liberty senior Mallory Fortenbaugh earned a spot on the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll on Monday afternoon.

Fortenbaugh is being included on the weekly honor roll for the third time in her career. She was named to the listing twice as a junior in 2018 (Oct. 8 and 22).

Fortenbaugh had her first career two-goal game in Sunday's 3-0 shutout win for the No. 15 Lady Flames over the Longwood Lancers. The defender scored penalty corner goals at the 40:03 and 47:09 marks to put Liberty in front 2-0 in the eventual 3-0 win.

Fortenbaugh and the Liberty defense also recorded their fifth shutout of the year on Sunday. The Lady Flames did not allow a shot on goal and only surrendered two shots to the Lancers in the match. Liberty currently ranks fifth in the country in goals-against-average (0.90) and shutouts per game (0.45).

Fortenbaugh ranks fourth on the team in goals (4), tied for second in assists (4) and fourth in points (12).

Liberty has featured seven players in the BIG EAST Weekly Awards through seven weeks, including a pair of offensive players of the week (Jill Bolton and Daniella Rhodes), two freshman of the week honors (both Rhodes) and three weekly honor roll recipients (Fortenbaugh, Rhodes and Ashley Dykema).

Fortenbaugh and the No. 15 Lady Flames (8-3, 3-1 BIG EAST) will play at BIG EAST foe Georgetown (5-9, 1-3 BIG EAST), Friday. Game time is set for 1 p.m. at Cooper Field in Washington, D.C.
