MELBOURNE, Fla.

This marks the first SSC Player of the Week award for Schimek of his career.

Schimek earned an assist while totaling a team high eight caused turnovers and adding four ground balls on the week.  In the Tars' 12-8 upset victory over No. 20 Colorado Mesa, the Fort Lauderdale, Fla. native earned a ground ball and caused a game high five caused turnovers while helping to hold the Mavericks to just 12 shots on goal and keeping them silent on both extra-man opportunities.  In the Tars' big 22-8 win over Colorado State-Pueblo, Schimek earned an assist while adding three ground balls and three caused turnovers in his time on the field.  With Schimek's help, the Tars have won five straight games.
