Collins receives GLVC honors for second time this fall
EVANSVILLE, Ind. – Julie Collins (Merrillville, Indiana), a sophomore forward for the University of Southern Indiana women's soccer team, was named the GLVC Player of the Week for the second time this fall. Collins had eight points on three goals and two assists in the USI victories over Kentucky Wesleyan College, the University of Indianapolis, and Saint Joseph's College last week.
This is the first time since Stephanie Minor in 2000 that a USI women's soccer player has earned this honor twice in a season.
Collins led the Screaming Eagles three-game sweep last week, scoring all three of the game-winning goals. For the season, she leads the Eagles with 22 points on a team-best nine goals and four assists.
The three-match winning streak has given USI its best record in the GLVC, 6-3-0, since the 2000 season and an overall record of 7-5-0.
The Screaming Eagles and Collins will resume action on the road in Ohio this weekend. USI plays at Tiffin University Saturday at 1 p.m. (CST) and at the University of Findlay Sunday at 1:30 p.m. (CST).
