Nov. 1, 2005
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - Arizona State senior midfielder Manya Makoski has been named the Pac-10 Women's Soccer Player of the Week for Oct. 25-31, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today.
The Trumbull, Conn., native scored a pair of goals, including the ninth game-winner of her career, to lead the Sun Devils past then-No. 16 Arizona in Tucson on Saturday night. The 2-1 win over the Wildcats was the first for ASU against a ranked opponent this season and kept the Sun Devils undefeated all-time against UA at 10-0-1.
In 2004, Makoski became one of only three Sun Devils all-time to be honored as an Academic All-American. She also earned first-team All-Pac-10 honors, was on the Pac-10 All-Academic second team and was recognized as a Maroon & Gold Scholar-Athlete.
Arizona State (4-2-1, 9-6-3), travels to USC and UCLA in the final weekend of Conference play.
This is Makoski's first Pac-10 Player of the Week honor and Arizona State's ninth weekly honor all-time.
