Baksa Earns Second Straight MPSF/KAP7 Newcomer of the Week Honor

Apr 12, 2022

TEMPE, Ariz. – On Tuesday afternoon the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation announced the weekly honors, and the Sun Devils again were represented by freshman attacker, Vanda Baksa, who adds her fifth Newcomer of the Week honor to her resumé. 

This honor comes after No. 9 Arizona State hosted No. 1 USC, and Baksa became just the third player to score 4+ goals against the Trojans all season, after she recorded four goals and an assist against the defending National Champs. 

Baksa was a perfect 2/2 on penalty shots in the game, which propelled her 10th straight game with 3+ goals, and extended her scoring streak to 16 straight games. Defensively, Baksa drew two exclusions and notched a steal in the contest to put her at 34 steals on the season. 

This is her fourth Newcomer of the Week honor in five weeks, the week without the honor being the week that the Sun Devils did not play. 

Others nominated: Honnie Vandeweghe (USC).
