Oct. 9, 2001
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - University of Washington senior midfielder Caroline Putz was named the Pacific-10 Conference women's soccer player of the week, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced Tuesday.
A native of Bountiful, Utah, Putz led the Huskies to a pair of non-conference wins last weekend, scoring a game-winner and setting up three scores to tie the school's career assist record. Putz converted a penalty kick for the only goal in Washington's 1-0 win over Montana on Friday, the seventh game-winner of her career. She is now tied for second among Husky career leaders in game-winning goals and ranks fifth with 19 career goals.
Putz distributed three assists in the Huskies' 7-0 defeat of Eastern Washington on Sunday. She increased her career assist total to 26, matching the school record that Theresa Wagner established last season. It marked only the sixth time in Husky history that a player has been credited with three assists in a game.
Putz leads 14th-ranked Washington (6-2-1) with five assists and nine total points this season. She is the Huskies' all-time leader in game-winning assists with 10.
Washington, which won the 2000 Pacific-10 Conference championship, begins defense of its title on Saturday (Oct. 13) against Washington State. Kick-off is 5 p.m. at Husky Soccer Field.
