Pac-10 Honors Husky Forward Tina Frimpong

Oct. 26, 2004

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - University of Washington senior forward Tina Frimpong, who scored a goal and assisted on both game-winning tallies last weekend while breaking the school record for points, was named the Pacific-10 Conference women's soccer Player of the Week on Tuesday.

Frimpong fueled a two-game sweep in the state of Oregon for the Huskies (12-3-1) who rose one spot to No. 6 in this week's Soccer America rankings.

She set up Nikki Gamble's golden goal three minutes into the second overtime of Friday's 3-2 win at Oregon State.

On Sunday at Oregon, Frimpong distributed an assist on Kim Taylor's game-winning goal in a 4-1 victory. She netted UW's third goal against the Ducks, increasing her school-record career total to 36.

A product of Hudson's Bay High School in Vancouver, Wash., Frimpong became the Huskies' all-time leader in career points Sunday as the goal and assist pushed her total to 83. The previous school record of 80 points was established by Theresa Wagner from 1997-2000.

The 2003 Pac-10 Co-Player of the Year, Frimpong leads UW with nine goals this season and is tied for team-high honors with 21 total points.

This is Frimpong's third Pac-10 Player of the Week award, her first this season.

Washington returns to action Friday, playing against cross-state rival Washington State at 2 p.m. in Pullman.
