Marquez Named to WPSL Team of the Week IV
June 17, 2009
Senior Analisa Marquez has been named to the Women's Premier Soccer League (WPSL) Team of the Week IV as announced yesterday by the league office for her efforts this past weekend.
A native of Tucson, Ariz., Marques earned her captain's band and led the Arizona Rush in two impressive shut-out victories with a win over current Big Sky-North SLC Sparta. The University of Arizona center back was instrumental in creating the counter attack which leads to the game winning goal in the 85th minute in Sunday's 1-0 win.
The WPSL is a 50-plus team national women's soccer league with five conferences and is considered one of the top amateur women's leagues in the world.
Marquez played and started in 19 games last season for the Wildcats. Marquez will be one of the team captain's next season and will be looked upon for leadership and guidance.
