Coming off a stellar weekend performance against No. 24 Indiana and No. 17 Michigan, junior forward Ashtin Klinger was named Big Ten Co-offensive player of the week, alongside Danica Deckard of Ohio State.
Klinger scored three goals this weekend, including the opening score of No. 6 Penn State's 7-1 rout over No. 24 Indiana and two back-to-back goals against No. 17 Michigan, which helped pace the Nittany Lions' close 4-3 victory over its conference rivals.
Klinger has been fantastic over her last few games for the Lions, earning herself at least a point in five straight contests. On the season she currently sits third in total goals scored with seven, behind only junior Brittany Grzywacz (8) and start forward Kelsey Amy, who leads the team with 15 goals.
With points earned in 7 of the Lions' 12 games, Klinger finds herself in an integral role up front for No. 6 Penn State and could provide a dangerous option for the team as it continues its run through Big Ten play.
