Menlo's Von Schottenstein earns GSAC women's soccer honor

 

Sophomore transfer Alexis Von Schottenstein had a huge week for the Menlo College women's soccer team, helping the Oaks beat UC Santa Cruz and Soka University of America over the weekend. She was named the Golden State Athletic League Offensive Player of the Week on Tuesday for her effort.

Von Schottenstein scored Menlo’s lone goal in Thursday’s 1-0 win over the Banana Slugs, getting an assist from Brittany Squarcia. She followed with her most productive game of the season, scoring a pair of goals Saturday in a 5-2 win over Soka.
