PLU’S CALLES EARNS WEEKLY 

NWC VOLLEYBALL HONORS

The Northwest Conference released its weekly award winners on Monday, Oct. 16, with Pacific Lutheran University volleyball student-athlete Kiana Calles earning Offensive Player of the Week accolades.

Calles secured the honor after helping the Lutes (15-3, 9-1 NWC) to a pair of road victories over the weekend against in-state foes Whitworth University and Whitman College. The Anacortes native collected 47 assists and 14 digs on Friday night, helping PLU overcome a 2-0 deficit en route to a 3-2 victory over Whitworth to secure sole possession of first place in the NWC standings. The Lutes continued their winning ways on Saturday with the setter securing 32 assists and 11 digs in a 3-0 win over Whitman, extending PLU’s win streak to eight matches.

Calles closed the week averaging 9.9 assists per set and 3.1 digs per set while also netting five kills, four aces, and five blocks.

This is the fifth time this fall the Lutes have been recognized by the league office as player of the week. Danielle Skibiel (Oct. 9) and Chloe Epker (Sept.18) earned NWC Offensive Player of the Week while Caylie Shiramizu has been recognized twice as the NWC Defender of the Week (Sept. 5 and Sept.18).

Pacific Lutheran opens a five match homestand on Friday, Oct. 20, welcoming Linfield College to Olson Gymnasium with first serve set for 7 p.m.

HODKINSON NABS THIRD NWC 

WEEKLY HONOR OF THE YEAR

For the third time this season, Pacific Lutheran University men’s cross country student-athlete Brad Hodkinson is the Northwest Conference Runner of the Week, securing the accolade after a dominating performance Saturday, Oct. 14, at the Lewis & Clark Invitational.

Hodkinson edged Carleton College’s Donson Cook-Callardo, the 2017 NCAA Division III runner-up in both the 800-meters and 1,500-meters, in a sprint to the finish line after traversing the 8,000-meter layout at McIver State Park in 24 minutes, 55.3 seconds. Hodkinson’s time was 4.1 seconds faster than Cook-Callardo and was 38 seconds swifter than the next fastest NWC competitor.

It was Hodkinson’s third consecutive race win while securing the NWC weekly award for the third time this fall. The junior previously earned the accolade on Oct. 2 and Sept. 18.

Hodkinson and the Lutes return to action on Oct. 28, competing at the NWC Championships in Walla Walla.

ANOTHER SHUTOUT KEEPS PLU 

WOMEN AT TOP OF NWC SOCCER

A pair of Lutes tallied their first goals of the season as the Pacific Lutheran University women’s soccer team picked up a 2-0 win over Northwest Conference rival Linfield College on Sunday, Oct. 15.

After a scoreless first half, PLU (12-2, 9-1 NWC) tallied its first goal in the 55th minute. Liz Griffith sent a cross in the box on a free kick that found Hailey Smoot, who tapped the ball into the net for a goal. Later in the 76th minute, Amber Richards scored on an assist from Kari Mills. The assist was Mills’ second career helper, and the second in an as many days.

“Our team really found our stride in the second half,” PLU head coach Seth Spidahl said. “We had seven different players score this weekend. We are seeing other people step up and contribute, like Kari. Amber scored a huge second goal for us today. It’s awesome to see other people contributing because obviously we have some other key offensive contributors. It was really a team effort.”

The Lutes had offensive control throughout the first half, despite not scoring any goals. They outshot the Wildcats (6-7-1, 4-5-1 NWC) 4-1 in the opening half. That trend would continue as their shot total grew to nine in the second half, as PLU finished the game with 13 shots to Linfield’s two.

Natalie Robinson picked up her 12th shutout of the season in Sunday’s win. She had a relatively easy day in goal, with the PLU defensive backline not allowing a shot on goal all game.

“Our defending was great today. We only allowed them two shots,” Spidahl said. “I’m really proud of the team. They found a way to win 2-0 and be pretty dominant about it. Overall, I’m very pleased.”

The Lutes have a midweek matchup this week as the Battle of the South Sound resumes with a game at the University of Puget Sound on Wednesday at 3 p.m. Then on Sunday, Oct. 22, the women host Willamette University on East Field at 12 p.m.
