BERKELEY - Senior defender Noah Merl was named to Soccer America's Team of the Week for Sept. 7-12. The honor follows a weekend in which the Golden Bears tied for first-place in the adidas Cal-Legacy Classic. Merl, a Walnut Creek native, was named tournament co-MVP and placed on the all tournament team.
Merl is one of the anchors in the backline, having appeared in every game (68) Cal has played during his career. Over the past two seasons, Merl has started 44 of 44 games.
Last season, along with his defensive prowess, Merl provided a boost in the offensive third with two goals and two assists.
Merl and the Bears play Cal State Fullerton on Friday at Titan Stadium in the SoccerTown Classic.
