Honors Already Rolling in for DiBernardo

Honors Already Rolling in for DiBernardo

Well, sophomore midfielder Vanessa DiBernardo hasn't wasted any time getting accolades from both the Big Ten conference and national soccer media outlets.  So far today, DiBernardo has been named to Top Drawer Soccer's Team of the Week, and been named Offensive Player of the Week by the Big Ten.  DiBernardo tallied four goals over the weekend in two Illini victories over Gonzaga and Toledo by identical 5-1 scores.

The Illini also moved up three spots in Top Drawer's Tournament 64 rankings from #35 to #32 after their wins Friday and Sunday.  Illinois hits the road for games at Ball State on Friday and Louisville on Sunday.

More rankings and info in this week's blog post on Thursday.  Thanks for reading.
