Meagan Holmes Named to SoccerBuzz Team of the Week

Sept. 20, 2006

USC sophomore defender Meagan Holmes (Timonium, Md./Dulaney HS) was named to the SoccerBuzz Elite Team of the Week after helping anchor USC to its fourth and fifth shutout victory in a row last week. Each week, SoccerBuzz acknowledges 18 players from around the country who had outstanding performances for their respective teams. Holmes' standout efforts on the back line have been paramount to the Trojans' history-making five-game shutout win streak.

Last week, Holmes and the USC defense helped lock away a 2-0 win over Eastern Washington and a 4-0 victory over UNLV at McAlister Field. With Holmes holding court at center back, USC allowed just one shot by Eastern Washington and just five shots by UNLV. Holmes also scored in the win over EWU with a header off a corner kick in the 74th minute of play, notching the sophomore's second goal of the year.

Holmes and the 6-1-1 Trojans aim to continue their winning ways this weekend against San Diego at 3 p.m. on Friday (Sept. 22) at McAlister Field, and at Loyola Marymount at 1 p.m on Sunday (Sept. 24).
