Gorodetsky Named UAA Women's Soccer Defensive Player of the Week
Emory University freshman defender Lauren
Gorodetsky was named the Defensive Player of the Week for
the University Athletic Association (UAA), after helping the
sixth-ranked Eagles to a 2-0 victory over Berry College on
Gorodetsky played the entirety of the Eagles victory, helping to hold the Lady Vikings to just three shots on goal, including just one in the second half. The shutout was the team’s eighth of the season, lowering the squad’s goals-against average to 0.45. Gorodetsky also assisted on Emory’s second goal of the game, her first collegiate helper. She has scored two goals as well for a total of five points this season.
Gorodetsky becomes the fifth-different Eagle to earn the honor this season, joining Kaele Leonard, Lee Bachouros, Clare Mullins and Kelly Costopoulos. All of the five, except for Costopoulos, earned the honor for their defensive efforts.
Gorodetsky’s performance has helped Emory to a 12-1-2 record in 2010. The Eagles will wrap up their home season this weekend, hosting Rochester on Friday and Case Western Reserve on Sunday.
