It’s been an astounding start to the season for Bridget Rothert. Two Most Valuable Player awards are a great foundation upon which to build success.
On Saturday in New York City, Rothert earned her second MVP honor in the early going, as she led the Lebanon Valley College women’s basketball team to its second tip-off tournament championship of the year, this one at Hunter College. An evening prior, Rothert had poured in a career-high 31 points and established a new Flying Dutchmen standard for three-pointers in a game with seven, during a 74-59 triumph over Eastern.
The Hunter tip-off tournament championship gave Lebanon Valley College a three-win week. It also kept the Flying Dutchmen undefeated on the season at 5-0.
A weekend earlier, Rothert, a 5-7 junior guard, was honored as the MVP of the Gwynedd Mercy tip-off tournament. Rothert netted 23 points in the Flying Dutchmen’s 84-63 triumph over the host team in the championship game.
Through five games this year, Rothert is averaging over 18 points a game, while leading Lebanon Valley in assists, rebounding and three-pointers.
