Pac-10 Women's Soccer Player of the Week Named
Sept. 16, 2003
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. -- OREGON sophomore forward Nicole Garbin has been named the Pac-10 Women's Soccer Player of the Week for Sept. 9-15, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today.
Garbin, from Wailuku, Hawai'i, contributed two goals and one assist to lead the Ducks to a 3-1 win at Sacramento State and the first 5-0 start in school history. Garbin put Oregon on the scoreboard with a successful penalty kick in the final minute of the first half. She netted the game-winner early in the second half and added an assist on an insurance goal in the 82nd minute.
Garbin's point total (5) was one shy of the school single-game record set by Chalise Baysa in 1998. In only her 23rd game as a Duck, Garbin also moved to second all-time with her sixth career game-winning goal behind Baysa (7).
The Ducks next travel to the SMU Tournament in Dallas to face Texas A&M on Fri., Sept. 19, and then play the Mustangs Sun., Sept. 21.
This is Garbin's first Pac-10 Player of the Week honor and Oregon's second weekly honor all-time.
