Harriet Withers and Alex Steigerwald of the Murray State soccer team have been named adidas OVC Players of the Week, the league office announced Tuesday.
Withers earned Offensive Player of the Week on the back of three goals in two games, with two coming against UT Martin in a 3-1 victory. Withers now has 12 goals on the year, which puts her one shy of tying the Murray State soccer single season goal record of 13.
For the second straight week, Steigerwald earned Goalkeeper of the Week. Winning both matches against Southeast Missouri and UT Martin, Steigerwald allowed one goal while making six saves and picked up her fifth shutout of the year.
The Racers are on the road for their lone game of the week, traveling to Eastern Kentucky on Thursday, October 5 at 3 p.m.
