FAIRFIELD, CT - Junior Dana Luhrs (Milford, PA) of the field hockey team has been named the Enterprise Rent-a-Car/Sacred Heart University Student-Athlete of the Week for the week of September 7-13.
Luhrs tallied five points to help Sacred Heart snap its five-game losing skid. The midfielder scored two goals less than 15 minutes apart and set up another in the Pioneers' 4-3 overtime defeat of Bucknell. After the Bison took a 2-0 lead, Luhrs pulled Sacred Heart even with back-to-back goals, the second of which came in the 39th minute. With Bucknell back in front, 3-2, the junior who was also named NEC Player of the Week, once again worked to tie the game. Luhrs sent a ball toward the net that Kim Pobutkiewicz would put past the keeper to force overtime.
