Alexandra Elston Named ASU Athlete of the Week
Nov. 11, 2009
Women's soccer player Alexandra Elston has been named ASU's Athlete of the Week for the week ending November 14th. Her spectacular performance, which included two goals, helped the Sun Devils capture their second Pac-10 win on the season. They defeated the University of Oregon 2-1, which gave the Sun Devils the win they needed in order to bolster their chances of securing an NCAA Tournament berth. This win would prove vital as the Sun Devils would soon find out that they were headed to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2003, to face the Wisconsin Badgers on Friday, November 13.
Elston scored both of ASU's goals in the second half of ASU's come-from-behind 2-1 win over Oregon on Sunday. Elston concluded the regular season as ASU's leader in goals and points and tied for the team lead in assists.
