Defensive Player of the Week
NEWMAC Women’s Soccer Defensive Player of the Week
Rachelle Rodman, Wheaton College, D, 2014 (Fair Oaks, Calif.)
In a 2-0 week and playing all 180 minutes for the regionally-ranked Lyons, Rodman helped anchor a defense that surrendered just one goal each against 2011 ECAC Tournament team Salve Regina and nationally-ranked Williams. During the Blue and White's 4-1 win over Salve on Saturday, Rodman marked 2011 NSCAA All-New England player Kaitlyn Birrell. Against Williams the next day, a 2-1 victory for Wheaton, Rodman kept the 14th-ranked Ephs off the board for over 87 minutes with her individual defense that included multiple clearances and timely tackles.
