YORK, Pa. – The accolades continue to roll in for the No. 4-ranked Salisbury University field hockey team, as the Capital Athletic Conference announced its weekly awards on Monday and junior goalkeeper Tressie Windsor was tabbed as the CAC Defensive Player of the Week.
Windsor notched four saves in the Sea Gulls' 6-1 victory over conference foe and No. 17-ranked University of Mary Washington on Saturday. The Eagles entered the contest as the top scoring team in the nation – averaging 5.13 goals per game – but were shut down by Salisbury's defense, which allowed just nine shots and one goal.
The Sea Gulls will need to continue their defensive stand as they host Catholic University of America on Wednesday evening at 6 p.m. The last time Salisbury beat Catholic was in 2012, when the maroon and gold brought home a 4-3 victory on strokes.
