WVUS Schwindel Named Disney Soccer/NSCAA Player of the Week
October 10, 2012
West Virginia's Kate Schwindel has been named Disney Soccer/NSCAA Player of the Week for her on-field accomplishments the week of Oct. 1-7.

WVU gets it second such award following Frances Silva's nod earlier in the season.

Schwindel's five-point weekend helped the No. 25 Mountaineers stay in first place in the Big 12. WVU was the only Big 12 team with a 2-0 record last week. The sophomore forward tallied her eighth game-winning goal in a 1-0 win over Kansas.

She followed up with three assists in a 3-2 road win at Iowa State, which was the second time this season she has posted a three-assist performance.

The Livingston, N.J.-native leads the team and the conference with 23 points and seven assists.

The Disney Soccer/NSCAA National Player of the Week is announced every Wednesday. One male and one female player is selected by a committee from nominations submitted primarily by NCAA Division I conferences.

Winners will also be recognized each week during NSCAA College Game of the Week broadcasts on FOX Soccer.
