Women’s soccer sweeps conference players of the week

Yolanda Vazquez earned recognition as the Red River Athletic Conference (RRAC) Women’s Soccer Offensive Player of the Week for Jan. 25-31, and OLLU’s Madison Herrera was named the RRAC Defensive Player of the Week for the same dates. This is the first set of conference awards for the 2020 women’s soccer season.

Vazquez scored the game-winning goal in the Saints’ 1-0 victory over NCAA Division II school, St. Mary’s University (SMU). The senior midfielder from Los Angeles found the net in the 62nd minute as OLLU opened its season on a high note as part of the Halo Classic. 

Herrera was instrumental in the Saints’ shutout over SMU. The sophomore defender from Helotes, Texas, played 80 minutes and thwarted the Rattlers throughout her time on the pitch.
