TULSA—Oral Roberts standouts Lorena Soto and Amanda Wheeler have been named Summit League Women’s Soccer Offensive and Defensive Player of the Week, the league office announced on Monday.

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.
