UW's Tina Frimpong is Pac-10 Player of the Week

Sept. 23, 2003

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - University of Washington junior forward Tina Frimpong, who amassed four goals and one assist during two games last weekend, was named the Pacific-10 Conference women's soccer Player of the Week on Tuesday for the second time this season.

Frimpong registered both game-winning goals over the weekend and was named the tournament's Offensive MVP after leading Washington to the Husky/Nike Invitational championship.

She netted two goals just 29 seconds apart and assisted on the other UW tally in a 3-1 victory over sixth-ranked Texas on Sunday. Frimpong scored twice Friday during a 3-0 win over Fresno State.

A product of Hudson's Bay High School in Vancouver, Wash., Frimpong leads Washington with eight goals. That figure eclipses the seven-goal total she recorded in each of her first two seasons.

Frimpong is currently tied for fourth among all-time Huskies with 22 career goals. She was honored by the Pac-10 earlier this season, receiving the weekly women's soccer award on Sept. 2.

The Huskies climbed to No. 13 in this week's Soccer America rankings. They host defending national champion and eighth-ranked Portland on Friday, Sept. 26. Kick-off is 4:30 p.m. at Husky Soccer Field.
