SEWARD, Neb. – For the first time this season and for the sixth time during her record-setting career, senior goalkeeper Chrissy Lind has garnered the distinction of Hauff Mid-America Sports/GPAC Women’s Soccer Defensive Player of the Week, as announced by the league on Tuesday (Sept. 6). Lind collected the same honor twice last season as a junior.

During last week’s action, Lind saw 135 minutes in goal over shutout wins over both York College, 6-0, and Graceland University (Iowa), 1-0. The native of Colorado Springs, Colo., made a total of six saves on the week and how has 15 this season. She’s started all four games at goalkeeper, totaling 335 minutes of action.

Lind owns many significant school goalkeeping records. She is the career standard bearer for shutouts (21) and games played (61) and the single-season record holder for shutouts (10), minutes played (1,991) and games played (21). With 256 career saves, Lind needs 72 to break the record of 327 held by Ariel Harris (2008-11). Lind has been the goalkeeper during the most successful era of Concordia women’s soccer that has included a GPAC tournament title in 2014.

Lind and the Bulldogs (2-1-1) return to action on Wednesday when they host Grace University (0-4) at 7 p.m. inside Bulldog Stadium.
