Russell Named MIAA Athlete of the Week

Freeland, Mich. - Sophomore Lexi Russell (Williamston, Mich. / Williamston High School) nearly led the Alma College women's soccer comeback herself against Mount St. Joseph University (OH) on Sunday (Sept. 8) and was rewarded for her efforts with the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association women's soccer Offensive Athlete of the Week award.

With the Scots down 2-0 late in the game, Russell ripped a shot from roughly 25 yards out for her first goal of the game, then scored again from nearly the same spot five minutes later to tie it at two. Russell is currently tied for third in the conference with three goals to her name.

The Scots return to action on Wednesday (Sept. 11) when they host Lawrence Technological University at 4:00 p.m.
