Ohio Wesleyan University senior Emily Kiourtsis (Pickerington/North) and junior Annie Swanson (McLean, Va./Langley) were named North Coast Athletic Conference Players of the Week for the week of March 19, it was announced by the NCAC.

Kiourtsis led the Bishops to a sweep of their spring trip last week, earning Women’s Tennis Player of the Week honors. She was a double winner in all 5 matches on the trip, compiling a 5-0 record at No. 2 singles and a 5-0 record at No. 2 doubles in wins over Edgewood, East Stroudsburg, Millersville, Olivet, and Greenville. Kiourtsis did not lose a set in singles play during the 5 matches, and had 2 shutouts (one 6-0, 6-0 win in singles, and one 8-0 win in doubles) during the week.

Swanson, an attacker, led the Bishops in scoring in each of their 3 games last week while grabbing Women’s Lacrosse Player of the Week recognition.
