Buechli Honored as AU GEICO Student-Athlete of the Week

WASHINGTON – American University lacrosse co-captain Terese Buechli has been chosen as the AU GEICO Student-Athlete of the Week for her performance in the Eagles' victory over Bucknell on Saturday.

Buechli, a junior midfielder from West Nyack, N.Y., scored a career-high five goals, including the game-winner, to help lead American to its first Patriot League win of the season, a 16-6 victory against the Bison. It marked the first time in Buechli's career that she had scored more than two goals in a single game.

American faces a tough opponent in its next contest, as the Eagles host 10th-ranked Louisville on Tuesday at 2 p.m.
