BRIDGEPORT, Pa. -- Indiana University's Kelsey Campbell (So., Maple Ridge, British Columbia/Maple Ridge) tallied five goals, three assists, two steals and eight kick-outs drawn over the weekend to earn the March 23 Western Division Player of the Week award.
Against Brown University, she tallied two goals with a pair of assists and a kick-out drawn to help the No. 18-nationally ranked Hoosiers knock off the Bears 9-8 in the Aztec Invitational.

The nod marks the second week in a row Campbell has garnered the Western Division Player of the Week award as she earned the honor on March 16. Overall, she is the first player to earn back-to-back Western Division Player of the Week awards since the University of Michigan's Meg Hausman (April 13 & April 27, 2006) and the first Western Division Player to achieve the feat on consecutive weekends since CWPA Hall of Fame member and 2008 U.S. Olympic goalie Betsey Armstrong earned the award on March 4 and 11, 2004.
For the season, Campbell has 22 goals, 13 assists, 21 steals and 22 kick-outs drawn as she has raised her career statistics to 59 goals and 54 assists following a 17 goal and 19 assist season as a freshman.
