The PACWEST is pleased to announce the soccer Athletes of the Week following Week 6 of the regular season.

Women’s Soccer Athlete of the Week
Michelle Wessa – Douglas Royals

Michelle Wessa was a force to be reckoned with all weekend. On Saturday, she led the Royals in a win against Quest, making several critical tackles. She also tallied the game winning goal with a header late in the first half. On Sunday, she led the Royals in headers won, tackles and contributed another goal in their game against VIU.

Men’s Soccer Athlete of the Week
David Turkstra – VIU Mariners

Third year keeper David Turkstra pitched back to back shutouts this past weekend and has extended his incredible shutout streak to four straight games. Thanks to this string he has taken over the PACWEST lead in goals against average with a 0.75. He is a major building block and reason the Mariners are currently in first place in the PACWEST and ranked 3rd in the nation.
