Fredonia sophomore goalkeeper Kendall Owczarzak (Lancaster, N.Y./Lancaster) has been chosen SUNYAC Women's Soccer Defensive Player of the Week.

Owczarzak had two shutouts with 19 saves to lead the Blue Devils to the title of the Fredonia Blue Devil/Clarion Hotel Classic. Her exploits earned her the tournament Most Valuable Player award.

Owczarzak had 13 of those saves vs. Baldwin Wallace, including two point-blank stops in the second half to preserve the 1-0 lead. She had six saves vs. Mount Union, another 1-0 Fredonia win, and made two more game-saving stops.

She lowered her season goals-against average to 1.50 and her save percentage to 85.7 percent.

"Kendall had a terrific weekend for us," Blue Devil Head Coach Chris Case said. "She made multiple big saves at key moments in both games over the weekend. I'm glad to see her playing with confidence."

Owczarzak and her teammates face a formidable opponent Tuesday when they visit No. 3-ranked William Smith, fresh off a 2-0 road win Saturday over No. 3 Messiah.
