SEWARD, Neb. – On the heels of two more shutouts, senior goalkeeper Chrissy Lind has been named the GPAC/Hauff Mid-America Sports Women’s Soccer Defensive Player of the Week, as announced by the league on Tuesday. This marks Lind’s second weekly award of the season and seventh in her career.

Also named GPAC defensive player of the week on Sept. 6, Lind recorded the 23rd and 24th shutouts of her career last week while extending her school record total. She made a combined eight saves while helping the Bulldogs to GPAC home wins over College of Saint Mary and Briar Cliff. The native of Colorado Springs, Colo., has made 68 saves this season and 309 for her career (second in program history).

In addition to owning the all-time program record for shutouts, Lind also holds school career goalkeeping records for games (73), minutes played (6,408) and wins (39). In 2014 she set new program single-season standards for games (21), minutes played (1,991), wins (14) and shutouts (10).

Lind and the Bulldogs (10-5-1, 5-3 GPAC) will return to action Wednesday at Doane (2-10-2, 2-4-2 GPAC). Kickoff from Crete is set for 5 p.m. CT.
