BELTON, TX — University of Mary Hardin-Baylor women’s soccer player Samantha Lehnen has been named American Southwest Conference Defensive Player of the Week for the week ending September 8th. Lehnen is the UMHB women’s soccer player to win ASC Weekly honors this season.
Lehnen, a senior defender from Manomonee Falls High School in Manomonee Falls, Wisconsin, led the Cru defense in a stifling performance against Austin College on Saturday. UMHB limited the Kangaroos to just two shots on goal and five total shots in a 3-0 victory. It was the first shutout of the season for the Cru women.
The UMHB women are 1-2 on the season after the win over the Roos. The Cru continues its homestand with matches against Schreiner University and Our Lady of the Lake this weekend.
