Pac-12 Announces Women's Soccer Players of the Week
SAN FRANCISCO - The Conference office announced today the Pac-12 Women's Soccer Players of the Week for action from Oct. 26 - Nov. 1. STANFORD collected all three accolades this week after claiming the Pac-12 title for the 10th time in program history and the fifth time in the last seven years. Jordan DiBiasi took home Offensive Player of the Week honors, while Alana Cook was voted Defensive Player of the Week and Jane Campbell was tabbed Goalkeeper of the Week for the second-straight week.
DiBiasi's (Highlands Ranch, Colo.) back-heel flick was the game-winning goal in the 1-0 win against then-No. 16 USC and she was a key part of Stanford's offense in the 2-0 win over UCLA to help clinch the Pac-12 title for the Cardinal. The freshman was instrumental to Stanford's success by pressuring the Bruins, distributing the ball to her teammates and she fired four shots in the match as well. This is DiBiasi's first-career weekly recognition and the second-straight week Stanford has claimed the offensive weekly honor. Stanford has 51 all-time honorees after this week's selections.
Cook (Far Hills, N.J.) anchored the Cardinal defense to two shutout victories against then-No. 16 USC and UCLA to clinch the Pac-12 Championship. The freshman played center back for the Cardinal and with the help of her teammates was able to shut down the middle of the field for her opponents. She has helped the Stanford defense shut out opponents in three-straight games and has not allowed a goal for a span of 342:23-straight minutes. It is Cook's first-career weekly honor.
Campbell (Kennesaw, Ga.) earned Pac-12 Goalkeeper of the Week honors for the second-straight week. The junior made four saves to help lead Stanford to two shutout victories and secure the Pac-12 title. Campbell made three saves in the 1-0 win over then-No. 16 USC and only needed to make one save in the 2-0 win against UCLA. She has not allowed a goal for a span of 342:23-straight minutes. Campbell posted her seventh and eighth shutouts of the season, and the 27th and 28th of her career, ranking her fifth on Stanford's all-time shutout list. This is Campbell's fifth-career weekly honor.
No. 3 Stanford will finish the regular season hosting its rival, the California Golden Bears, at 6 p.m. PT on Friday, Nov. 6 (Pac-12 Bay Area).
