SPARTANBURG, SC – UNC Greensboro senior forward Michael FitzGerald was named the Southern Conference Men’s Soccer Player of the Week on Tuesday afternoon.
FitzGerald, a native of Wilmington, NC, scored twice in UNCG’s 2-1 win over College of Charleston last Wednesday to keep the Spartans atop the Southern Conference standings.

FitzGerald is tied for second on the team and third in the Southern Conference in scoring this season with 17 points on eight goals and one assist.
The Spartans take on second-ranked Wake Forest on Wednesday night at 7 pm in Winston-Salem.
