A huge weekend for No. 16 Wisconsin women’s soccer just got better.
On the heels of an East Coast road trip that saw the Badgers nab a tremendous upset over then-No. 3 Virginia and a win over William and Mary, three players received All Big Ten recognition on Tuesday.
Forward Dani Rhodes was named Big Ten Co-Offensive Player of the Week. Rhodes had the lone goal in the upset of the Cavaliers as well as a goal and assist against the Tribe.
Yep. Big Ten Co-Offensive Player of the Week moves indeed. pic.twitter.com/s9MPcWtR9C— Wisconsin Soccer (@BadgerWSoccer) September 5, 2017
Goalkeeper Caitlyn Clem was named Big Ten Goalkeeper of the Week. Clem allowed only one goal on the road trip and pitched a shutout against Virginia to preserve the victory for the Badgers.
Defensive Player of the Week.... This is why. Shutting out No. 3 Virginia on the road. pic.twitter.com/ACN5S9MFqV— Wisconsin Soccer (@BadgerWSoccer) September 5, 2017
Forward Lauren Rice was named Big Ten Co-Freshman of the Week. Rice, clearly an erroneous omission from last week’s Year of the Freshman column, scored two goals against William and Mary.
