UPS’ LANGE PICKS UP FOURTH 

NWC WEEKLY SOCCER HONOR

Jamie Lange is a really good soccer player. The Puget Sound women’s soccer goalkeeper earned her fourth Northwest Conference Student-Athlete of the Week (defense) honor, the league announced Monday, Oct. 30.

Lange totaled 15 saves during the Loggers’ wins over Whitworth and Whitman this weekend. She surrendered a penalty-kick goal during a 2-1 win over the Pirates (Oct. 28), which snapped Lange’s shutout streak at 661 minutes.

The following day, Lange needed eight saves to shutout Whitman, 2-0. The Puget Sound defense has held the opposition scoreless in 12 games this season.

The Loggers allowed just two goals in nine October games, posting an 8-0-1 record during the month. Puget Sound is unbeaten in its last 11 games.

The Loggers are in second place in the NWC standings, trailing Pacific Lutheran by four points with two games remaining. Puget Sound next plays at Willamette on Saturday, Nov. 4, at 12 p.m.

FRESHMAN OF THE YEAR HONORS 

FOR UPS’ SAMANTHA SCHAFFER

Samantha Schaffer was named the Northwest Conference Women’s Cross Country Freshman of the Year, while both she and Rachael Metzler were named to the All-NWC Second Team following the NWC Championships hosted by Whitman Saturday, Oct. 28.

The Logger women placed third overall with a team score of 92, and the Logger men finished ninth with a score of 232. The Whitworth women won as a team, and the Willamette men claimed the NWC crown.

Schaffer finished the women’s 6k in 22:54.7, good for eighth overall. Metzler placed 10th with a time of 23:04.5. Abigail Dalke placed 23rd (24:02.2), and Alison Wise finished 25th (24:07.3).

On the men’s side, Liam Monghan was the first finisher for the Loggers. He timed in at 27:38.8 in the 8k, good for 34th overall. Isaac Fournier followed close behind, timing in at 27:53.4, which was good for 44th.

OUTSTANDING DEFENSE LEADs 

TO NWC HONOR FOR CLAYTON

Jason Clayton single-handedly kept 10 points off the board during the Puget Sound football team’s 14-13 win over Willamette, on Saturday, Oct. 28, and the cornerback was named the Northwest Conference Student-Athlete of the Week (defense).

Midway through the second quarter, with the Loggers trailing 7-0, Clayton was lined up in one-on-one coverage and he intercepted a pass in the end zone to keep the Loggers within striking distance.

Puget Sound held a 14-13 lead midway through the fourth quarter, but the Bearcats were poised to take the lead when they lined up for a 20-yard field-goal attempt. Clayton broke through the line and blocked the kick, and the Loggers held on for the one-point win.

Clayton finished the game with eight solo tackles. He is tied with Zackary Teats for the team lead in interceptions with two this season.

Clayton is the second Logger to earn NWC Student-Athlete of the Week for defense this season. Todd Blakely received the honor following the Loggers’ win over Occidental (Sept. 9).

The Loggers play at No. 8 Linfield on Saturday, Nov. 4, at 1 p.m.

NORWOOD GRABS WEEKLY 

SOCCER HONORS FOR LOGGERS

Wren Norwood shutout out first-place Willamette, leading the Puget Sound men’s soccer team to an upset win and his first Northwest Conference weekly honor.

Norwood was tabbed the NWC Student-Athlete of the Week (defense) after totaling six saves between a pair of one-goal wins for the Loggers. Puget Sound earned a 2-1 win over Linfield on Saturday, Oct. 28 in double-overtime, and the Loggers came away with a 1-0 win over the Bearcats the following day.

Among NWC goalkeepers with at least eight starts, Norwood leads the league with a 0.78 goals-against average.

Puget Sound concludes the 2017 season by hosting crosstown rival Pacific Lutheran on Saturday, Nov. 4, at 12 p.m.

PLU’S NA EARNS THIRD 

NWC WEEKLY SOCCER HONOR

For the second consecutive week and the third time this season, Pacific Lutheran University men’s soccer student-athlete Eddie Na is the Northwest Conference Offensive Player of the Week, securing the honor on Monday, Oct. 30, after a milestone performance in his final games at East Field.

Na tallies the award after netting three goals over the weekend, helping the Lutes (11-4-3, 9-2-2 NWC) secure at least a share of the conference title. The University Place native tallied the game winner against Willamette University on Saturday, Oct. 28, forcing a tie atop the standings with the 2-1 win. The following day, Na tallied a pair of goals as the Lutes’ cruised to the 4-1 win over Linfield College in his final game at East Field. Na found the back of the net in the 77th minute and again in the 87th minute with his final score setting a new school record for career goals. The forward has found the back of the net on 50 occasions, breaking the old mark of 49 shared by both Brian Gardner (1986-1989) and Mike Ferguson (2004-2007).

The reigning NWC Offensive Player of the Year was previously named NWC Offensive Player of the Week on Oct. 2 and Oct. 23 while also winning the accolade twice during the 2016 campaign (Sept. 8 and Sept. 26).

The Lutes have a chance to secure the league’s automatic bid to the NCAA Division III Tournament on Saturday, Nov. 4, making the short jaunt across town to take on the University of Puget Sound. Kickoff is slated for 12 p.m.

SIMPSON MAKES A SPLASH WITH 

NWC SWIMMING HONORS FOR LUTES

Pacific Lutheran University student-athlete Kaycee Simpson’s dominant debut has earned her the Northwest Conference Swimmer of the Week Award on Monday, Oct. 30.

Simpson won three of the five events contested during the NWC Sprints on Friday, Oct. 27, taking the overall pentathlon title while swimming on three winning relays the following day at the NWC Relays. Her efforts helped the Lutes win both events to kick off the competitive season.

The Graham native won the 100-yard individual medley (1:00.24), 50-yard butterfly (27.00), and the 50-yard breaststroke in her collegiate debut at the NWC Sprints, finishing as the pentathlon champion with a cumulative time of 2:52.82 and was nearly three seconds faster than the next closest competitor. PLU dominated the team standings, scoring 410.5 points and enjoying a 218.5-point buffer over host University of Puget Sound.

The following day, Simpson collected relays wins in the 300-medley relay (3:09.20) and the 300-butterfly relay (3:03.64), along with the mixed gender 400-yard freestyle relay (3:29.91). PLU again dominated the rest of the conference, scoring 28 points and holding a five-point edge on Whitworth University.

PLU, undefeated the past three seasons in conference duals, begins the NWC slate this week, heading to Forest Grove, Ore. on Friday, Nov. 3, to face Pacific University.
