WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - Washington State's (4-1-1) starting goalkeeper Katie Hultin was named the Pacific-10 Conference Women's Soccer Player of the Week for Sept. 14-20, conference commissioner Tom Hansen announced Tuesday.
The Denver, Colo., native recorded her fourth straight shutout this season in the Cougars' 1-0 victory over No. 12 Pepperdine Friday, at Lower Soccer Field in Pullman, Wash. Hultin made four saves in the match, bringing her season total to 22. She has yet to surrender a goal in 425 minutes in net. The redshirt-junior is 3-0-1 this season, posting wins over Denver, New Mexico, Pepperdine and a scoreless tie against then-No. 8 Tennessee.
This is the first Pac-10 Player of the Week honor for Hultin and the third weekly honor in the history of Washington State soccer.
Hultin is ranked on several WSU all-time career categories including a second place standing in shutouts with 11. She is fifth in minutes in goal with 2,175 and saves with 99.
The co-captain also leads Pac-10 goalkeepers in the goals against average (0.00), shutouts per game (0.80) and save percentage (1.00) categories. She is second in the conference in shutouts, tied for fifth with a 4.40 saves per game average and third in saves.
The Cougars travel to the Beehive State to take on Utah Thursday, at 3:30 p.m. PDT and BYU Saturday, in a match scheduled to kickoff at 6:30 p.m. PDT.
