Brentwood, TN – Senior defender Claire Pultz, of the Austin Peay State University women’s soccer team, has been named Ohio Valley Conference women’s soccer Defensive Player of the Week for August 26th in a vote of conference sports information directors.
Pultz scored the first goal in the Governors 5-2 victory over Chattanooga in the ninth minute and added an assist on Caroline Wistrom’s 80th minute goal.
Pultz was also one of three Lady Govs to play every minute of the weekend’s two matches.
“Claire had an outstanding performance on Sunday” said head coach Kelley Guth. “She is a great offensive threat with her speed and aggression. As a senior captain she has an opportunity to cause a major impact in every game that we play and I am excited to continue to see her grow in that role.”
The Lady Govs return to action this Friday when they host Alabama at 7:00pm at Morgan Brothers Soccer Field.
