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.
