Soto, Wheeler Earn Summit League Weekly Honors
Soto captures the first Offensive Player of the Week award of the season after leading the Golden Eagles to a pair of victories over UALR and Northwestern (La.) State last week. The senior accounted for both goals vs. UALR, tallying the game-winning goal and assisting on the insurance goal. She also registered a goal in the 3-1 win over Northwestern State. For the week, Soto scored two goals with one assist, while recording five points and one game-winner.
Wheeler collects the Defensive Player of the Week nod after recording her eighth career shutout with five saves in the 2-0 win over UALR Friday. She made three stops against Northwestern State, while only surrendering one goal. The Mission Viejo, Calif., native registered a 0.50 GAA with eight saves and a shutout on the week.
With a pair of victories, ORU is off to its first 2-0-0 start since 2003. The Golden Eagles next face Tulsa, 7:35 p.m., Sunday at TU.
