Wright and Young Earn SCAC Player of the Week Awards


San Antonio - Two senior members of the Trinity University Tigers women’s soccer team have been named Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Players of  the Week. 

Forward Brianna Young was selected as SCAC Offensive Player of the Week, and defender Danika Wright was named Defensive Player of the Week.

Young, from Rockville Centre, N.Y. (Southside), scored two goals and made two assists in the Tigers’ SCAC road victories last weekend over Birmingham-Southern and Millsaps. She scored the game-winning goals, as well as dishing out assists in the other two Trinity goals. For the season, Young leads the team with seven goals, six assists and 20 points. Her five game-winners are also the most on the Tiger squad this season. Young has scored 12 game-winning goals in her career.

Wright, from Alpine, Utah (Lone Peak), led the stingy Tiger defense which posted shutouts last week. Trinity allowed seven total shots, and only two on goal. Wright and the Tigers allowed just four shots and two corner kicks in the Birmingham-Southern game, then limited Millsaps to three shots and two corner kicks.

Trinity has recorded eight shutouts in nine games this season, and has yielded one goal. In addition, Trinity has four shutouts in its last four games.

The Tigers are undefeated at 9-0-0 and 2-0-0 SCAC. They are ranked No. 5 in the nation, by d3soccer.com, and sixth by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America Division III poll.
