Hiron Nets Sixth ASUN Player of the Week Honor

Ashtyn Hiron named ASUN Player of the Week

LAKE POINT, Ga. – For the sixth time this season, senior midfielder Ashtyn Hiron has represented Jacksonville University women's lacrosse as the ASUN Conference Player of the Week, as announced by the league office Tuesday.

For the fifth time this season, Hiron totaled eight points in the Dolphins' regular season finale against Steston last Sunday. With seven goals, the Perth, Western Australia native matched the Dolphins' single-game record, while her eight points match the program's second-highest point total in a single game. She also added five ground balls, eight draw controls, and caused two turnovers in the effort.

Hiron currently leads the nation with a .733 free position percentage, and leads the ASUN with 77 points and 4.81 points per game.

Only one other player - former Dolphin and current assistant coach Brittney Orashen - has been recognized six times in her career for ASUN weekly honors. 

Hiron and the rest of the Dolphins return to action for the ASUN Tournament semifinals this Thursday, May 3 when #1 seed Jacksonville play host to #4 seed Old Dominion at 1 p.m. The ASUN Championship will be held at JU's D.B. Milne Field this Saturday, May 5 at 1 p.m.
