Muscle Milk California Student-Athlete of the Week

October 1, 2007

BERKELEY - Freshman Alex Morgan found the back of the net four times in two games over the weekend, nailing the gamewinners in both, to pace the Bears to two big victories and earn the forward this week's honors as the Muscle Milk California Student-Athlete of the Week.

On Friday, Morgan posted a hat trick to lead No. 22 Cal to a 4-0 victory over Saint Mary's. The graduate of Diamond Bar High School wound up the weekend with her scoring strike against No. 1-ranked and previously unbeaten Santa Clara.

Sunday's 2-0 win over the Broncos had echoes of the last time the Golden Bears beat a top-ranked team, when Cal also edged No. 3 Santa Clara on the road in September 2001 by a 2-1 score. Morgan now has a team-high five goals this season and paces the team with 10 points.
