Marisa Abegg Selected to <i>Top Drawer Soccer</i>'s Collegiate Women's Team Of The Week
Sept. 30, 2008
STANFORD, Calif. - Senior defender Marisa Abegg was selected to this week's Top Drawer Soccer Collegiate Women's Team of the Week for play the week of 9/22-28. Abegg assisted on freshman Lindsay Taylor's game-winning goal last Friday evening, as the sixth-ranked Stanford Cardinal defeated Saint Mary's 3-0 at home.
The assist was her third of the season, and Abegg continues to show with each match that she is one of the best central defenders in the college game with her strong playmaking ability out of the back and her ability to deal with opposing offenses with great composure. She has aided the Cardinal defensive unit in posting a goals-against-average of 0.239, the third best mark in NCAA Division I play so far this season.
The Top Drawer Soccer honor is the first in her career, and the second national team of the week selection for the Cardinal co-captain, as she was named to the Soccer Buzz Elite Team of the Week on Oct. 18, 2006.
