VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – Julie Fassl of the Virginia Wesleyan University field hockey team has been named the Marlin of the Week for the week ending on October 13, 2019.
Fassl scored her second-career hat trick on Friday evening to help the Marlins shut out Ferrum, 4-0, on the road. Just over three minutes in, the junior was able to get one by the Panther netminder as she finished an Elizabeth Roberto pass. Just 2:20 later, she notched her second of the day as she completed a Haille Hatter pass. Fassl then completed the hat trick in the final quarter as she tipped a Roberto pass by the Ferrum goalie.
With nine goals, the New Egypt, N.J. native leads the Marlin squad and ranks fifth in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference.
Fassl and the field hockey team returns to action again at 7 p.m. on Saturday as the team squares off against No. 19 Lynchburg.
