Abigail Loar Named SCAC Player of the Week


San Antonio - Trinity University Tigers sophomore forward Abigail Loar of Littleton, Colo. (Heritage), has been named the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Women’s Soccer Offensive Player of the Week.

Loar led the third-ranked Tigers in scoring last week, as Trinity clinched its 14th SCAC Championship and the automatic bid to the NCAA Division III playoffs, with two road victories.

In last Friday’s 8-0 shutout of Oglethorpe, Loar scored her first hat trick (three goals). She scored her first goal just 20 seconds into the game, marking her fifth-game-winner of the season. Loar then added another in the 31st minute.  Loar also scored the first goal of the second half for the Tigers, giving her the team’s first hat trick since the 2007 season.

During Sunday’s 6-1 SCAC-clinching victory over Sewanee: The University of the South, Loar scored two second-half goals.

For the season, Loar has scored 12 goals and recorded four assists.  Trinity is undefeated with a 14-0-0 overall record, and stands at 7-0-0 in the SCAC.

The Tigers, ranked No. 1 in the NCAA West Region, close out their regular season with two SCAC home games next weekend, Trinity’s Alumni Weekend. Trinity hosts Rhodes at 8 p.m. Friday, and Hendrix at 2 p.m. Sunday.

Official NCAA bids will be announced Monday, and the playoffs begin Nov. 12. The NCAA Final Four will be held at San Antonio’s Blossom Soccer Stadium Dec. 4-5. Trinity and San Antonio Sports are the hosts of the men’s and women’s event.
