Maud Megens Opens 2021 Action As MPSF Player of the Week
In her first game back with the Trojans since May 2019, Maud Megens drummed up five goals in USC's 2021 season-opening win over UC Irvine. For her dominant efforts, Megens has been selected as the MPSF Player of the Week.
It's the sixth such honor for Megens, who took the 2020 season off to train with the Dutch National Team in preparation for Olympic Qualifying. With Megens' help, the Netherlands earned Olympic qualification last month to book a trip to Tokyo this summer. Now back in the water with her USC team, Megens stands tall for the Trojans. In addition to the five goals she scored for USC against UC Irvine, Megens also delivered four assists and had a steal in the 12-7 win.
Megens is the first to earn MPSF Player of the Week accolades this season as women's competition gets underway for 2021. USC's next action takes the Trojans to Tempe, Ariz., for a three-day event featuring USC, Michigan and Arizona State from Feb. 26-28.
