Wagner, Woodruff secure MIAA weekly honors

NSU briefs

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Lauren Wagner and Jordan Woodruff have both been honored as conference players of the week, the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association announced Tuesday.

Wagner, a true freshman defender from Broken Arrow, was honored as the MIAA Defensive Athlete of the Week. Woodruff, a true freshman goalkeeper from Long Island, N.Y., was named the MIAA Goalkeeper of the Week.

The young tandem helped pace an NSU backline that blanked both opponents on the road last weekend. Wagner played all 180 minutes at the left back position and helped lead a defense that held Nebraska-Kearney to its lowest shot total of the season (11) in MIAA play. Northeastern State also held Fort Hays State to its second-lowest shot total of the year (8).

The RiverHawks have now recorded four straight shutouts and lead the entire conference in fewest goals allowed in 2013 (7).

Woodruff broke two school records this past weekend. She now owns NSU’s all-time record for shutouts in a single season (6) and consecutive shutouts (4). Woodruff posted a 0.00 goals-against average and a perfect 1.000 saves percentage in her record-breaking performances this weekend against Nebraska-Kearney and Fort Hays State.

NSU (10-2, 4-2 MIAA) will next be in action at 7 p.m. Friday at home against Southwest Baptist.

Nebraska-Kearney won the event with a 27-over 879, while No. 8 Central Missouri placed second (887).
