First four-time single-season honoree in A-Sun history

MACON, Ga. (Oct. 22, 2012) – Junior Ramey Kerns (Kings Mountain, N.C.) became the first four-time, single-season Atlantic Sun Player of the Week honoree in conference history Monday following her record-breaking weekend performance.

On the week, Kerns totaled 11 points with five goals and one assist. She tied Erin Ashton for the ETSU single-game goals record on Sunday, netting four in the, 5-1, win against North Florida. The hat trick was the second of the season for Kerns, making her the first Lady Buccaneer in program history to record two in a season. The only ETSU student-athlete to post two in a career was Lisa Gallagher, who did so in 1998 and 2001.

Kerns, who is a senior academically and will be leaving the Lady Bucs at the end of the year, also scored a goal on Friday, moving her season total 20 and tying for seventh most in A-Sun history. Kerns leads the conference in goals and points (44), which are both ETSU single-season records.

Entering last week, Kerns was a goal behind the nation’s leading goal scorers. When the NCAA stats come out on Monday, she will more than likely be near the top of the list once again.
