BRIDGEPORT, W.Va.¬†— West Virginia Wesleyan’s Marissa Zetty is the Mountain East Conference Offensive Player of the Week, while teammate Chelsea Hubner has been recognized as the Defensive Player of the Week.

Zetty, a junior from Grindstone, Pa., helped the Bobcats to a pair of wins last week with two goals out of the midfield. She tacked on the game’s final goal in a 4-1 win over South Division rival Concord, and then provided the insurance goal in a 2-0 win over Urbana. With the wins, the Bobcats secured the MEC South Division title.
