Sept. 6, 2009

Sophomore Renae Cuellar led the Wildcats to their first win of the season, defeating Old Dominion 2-1 on Sunday in Tempe.

The Wildcats, now 1-3-1 defeated Old Dominion University now 2-3-1 on the final day of the Sun Devil Desert Classic.

Cuellar scored her first goal, second of the season, in the 11th minute, off a saved shot by senior Jasmine Namdar. Cuellar's second goal was taken in the 23rd minute, off another assist from Namdar.

Old Dominion's only goal came in the game's 50th minute, scored by Ashley Kukrua, and assisted by Ashlee Coutu and Lisa Bernardini.

'I'm very happy with today's overall effort.' Said head coach Dan Tobias, 'We played a solid first half, with Renae scoring our two goals in the beginning of the first half. This was definitely a great way for us to end the tournament, and a positive step for us for the rest of the season.'

Cuellar, along with freshman Karli Hedlund, and senior Samantha Drees were named to the Sun Desert Classic All-Tournament Team.
