Bartle named C2C Player of the Week

HANCOCK — Junior Natalie Bartle has been named the Coast-To-Coast Athletic Conference (C2C) Women’s Basketball Player of the Week for Feb. 23. Members of the C2C are Christopher Newport, Finlandia, Mount Mary, Mary Washington, Pratt, Salisbury, UC Santa Cruz and Warren Wilson.

This is the second time that Bartle has received the award.

Bartle had a record-breaking and milestone setting week in helping the Lions go 2-0.  She scored 35 points with eight rebounds, seven assists and four steals in a 103-62 win over C2C foe Mount Mary (Feb. 10).

The next day, in a 102-42 win over Maranatha Baptist, she posted a double-double (35 point, 11 rebounds) and pushed her season field goals made total to 182.  That broke the record of 175 set in 2002-03 by USCAA All-American Beth Koski.

Bartle became the first player in school history, male or female, to score 35 points or more in back-to-back-games. She needs just 29 points to become the second woman’s player to score over 500 in a season.
