The Gulf Coast Athletic Conference has named Spring Hill College soccer players Abby Galen and Lynsey Winkler as its Female Soccer Players of the Week for their performances on the soccer pitch during the week of October 13-19, 2008.
Galen, a freshman forward from St. Louis, Mo., recorded both goals in the Lady Badgers 2-0 conference victory over LSU-Shreveport on Saturday. For the season, Galen has scored four goals with two assists as a starter for the SHC offense.
Winkler, a senior defensive player from Chesterfield, Mo., is the Lady Badgers team captain and has led the SHC defense to five shutouts so far in 2008. Under her leadership, the SHC defense has allowed just 17 goals and SHC goalkeepers have faced only 70 shots-on-goal. The victory on Saturday pushed the Lady Badgers' record to 10-3, tying the school record for wins in a season.
