Butler football's Brock Sturges and soccer's Pricsila Bonilla have been selected as the Butler Athletes of the Week, presented by White Eagle Credit Union.
Brock Sturges, Football
In Saturday's 36-17 win over #6 Snow (Utah), Sturges carried the ball 21 times for 89 rushing yards and two touchdowns. Sturges, a freshman from Allen, Texas, also caught a pass for 21 yards in the victory. Sturges currently is tied for second among all NJCAA running backs with three rushing touchdowns on the season.
Pricsila Bonilla, Soccer
Bonilla scored the game-winning goal in the 73rd minute in Saturday's 1-0 win over #5 Navarro (Texas). On a cross to the middle of the box from freshman Karter Corini, Bonilla hit a left-footed shot right at Navarro goalkeeper Laura Jansa. With both players going for the ball, Bonilla - a sophomore midfielder from Garland, Texas - barely beat Jansa to the ball by hitting a sliding shot into the net for the Grizzly goal.
