EVANSVILLE, Ind. – University of Southern Indian sophomore goalkeeper Maya Etienne (Midland, Michigan) was named the Great Lakes Valley Conference Defensive Player of the Week for her efforts in the Screaming Eagles homestand sweep of Rockhurst University and William Jewell College. The honor is the third of Etienne’s career.
Etienne started the weekend by recording a 1-0 shutout of Rockhurst after making three saves and facing eight total shots. She completed the week by facing three William Jewell shots and making two saves to earn her second-straight shutout.
With the two victories, Etienne evens her season record at 3-3-1, including four shutouts, and lowered her team-best goals against average to 0.72. She also increased her career-shutout total to 25, three away from the USI career mark.
Etienne and USI (5-4-2, 3-4-1 GLVC) hit the road next weekend for a pair of matches. They start the trip with a visit to Springfield, Missouri, to face GLVC-leading Drury University (10-1-0, 8-1-0 GLVC) Friday at 10 a.m. and conclude the trip with a stop in Bolivar, Missouri, to play Southwest Baptist University (2-7-1, 2-6-0 GLVC) Sunday at noon.
