GW Women's Soccer's Ulrick, Elson Nab Atlantic 10 Weekly Awards
Senior Goalkeeper Named Player of the Week, Freshman Tabbed Co-Rookie of the Week
Oct. 7, 2013
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - George Washington women's soccer senior Nicole Ulrick was named the Atlantic 10 Player of the Week and freshman Kate Elson was tabbed Co-Rookie of the Week after the pair helped the Colonials to a 1-0 conference-opening win at Rhode Island on Friday.
Elson earned a share of the weekly award after tallying the unassisted game-winner with less than 90 seconds showing on the clock to lift GW to victory over URI. The Cincinnati, Ohio, product broke the scoreless tie with her first career goal at the 88:35 mark when she collected the ball at the post and put a shot in the left corner past a diving Rams' keeper. Elson now has three points on the year after she assisted senior Jane Wallis' goal against Saint Francis on Sept. 1.
Ulrick made a career-high 10 saves on the night, setting aside five shots in each half. Despite URI out-shooting GW Ulrick fought off the offensive attack to hold the Rams scoreless and help the Colonials claim their third shutout of the season. She has played all 870 minutes in goal and her .783 save percentage ranks fifth in the A-10.
The weekly nods are the first for both Ulrick and Elson, who helped the Buff and Blue improve to 4-2-3 on the season and extend their unbeaten streak to six matches, their longest since the 2010 season. Elson shares the award with Maggie Mayo of Duquesne.
GW returns home on Friday, Oct. 11 to host defending A-10 Champion La Salle. Action at the GW Soccer Field on the Mount Vernon Campus is slated to kick off at 3 p.m.
