Lee Bachouros Named UAA Athlete of the Week for Womens Soccer
Emory University sophomore Lee Bachouros was
named the Athlete of the Week for women’s soccer, based on
her defensive performance during two games last weekend.
Bachouros led an Eagles defense that did not allow a goal in two games last weekend. During the Eagles’ 3-0 win over Birmingham-Southern College on Friday night, Bachouros keyed an Emory unit that allowed just one shot on goal and three total shots, en route to the shutout victory. She contributed on the offensive end as well during the game, assisting on the game-winning goal with a well-placed corner kick, and taking three shots, two of which were on goal.
On Sunday, Bachouros and the Emory backline held Rhodes College to just five shots, only two of which were on goal, during the 2-0 victory.
She has been a major contributor to the Emory defense this season, which has recorded a 0.53 goals-against average, and held opponents to an average of 3.6 shots on goal per game. In addition, Bachouros leads all Emory players with four assists, two of which have been on game-winning goals.
Her play during the year has helped Emory remain the only undefeated team in the UAA this season, with an overall record of 6-0-1. The Eagles will return to action Wednesday night, hosting Agnes Scott College at the Woodruff P.E. Center at 8:00 PM.
