SALISBURY, Md. – The Capital Athletic Conference announced its weekly awards on Tuesday, and Salisbury University junior Rachel Anderson was named the women's soccer Defensive Player of the Week.
Anderson's defensive presence helped keep Meredith College to four corner kicks and only one shot on goal in the Gulls' 3-1 win on Friday afternoon. The Bowie, Maryland native displayed a calm, cool, and collected head in the defensive third. The junior center back was seen winning headers and connecting crisp accurate passes out of the back that helped propel the Sea Gulls to a 3-1 victory over the Avenging Angels.
The award is Anderson's first career Defensive Player of the Week award, and it marks the team's first award of the season.
The Sea Gulls continue their campaign on the road against Kenyon College this Saturday, September 10 at 12:00 pm.
