GREENSBORO, N.C. – North Carolina junior midfielder Kelsey Kolojejchick has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Field Hockey Player of the Week for her two-goal performance in a win over No. 5 Syracuse this past weekend.

After trailing 2-0 at halftime, redshirt freshman Abby Frey got the Tar Heels on the board in the 50th minute. Kolojejchick evened the score in the 61st minute, and less than two minute later at the 62:48 mark, the native of Larksville, Pa. dove to push in a rebound to give North Carolina a lead that they would hold onto for the win.

Kolojejchick leads Carolina in scoring this season with four goals, two of them game winners.

With the win, the No. 2 ranked Tar Heels improved their record to 3-0 and a perfect 2-0 against ranked teams. North Carolina will return to action this weekend when they head north to take on Delaware Friday afternoon at 4:00 p.m. In addition, they will face Lafayette in Newark, Del. Sunday at 12:00 p.m.
