Special to the Sun
Freshman Ashley Thompkins made history at St. Catharine College last week by becoming the first athlete from the school to earn Player of the Week honors from the Mid-South Conference.
The forward from Hopkinsville scored six of her team's eight goals in victories over Midway College and Berea College.
Voting for the award is done by each of the seven member schools in the conference.
St. Catharine is a new member of the Mid-South Conference as it became an NAIA institution for the first time this fall.
