FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. -- Senior goal keeper Jaisa Loch earned USA South Women's Soccer Defensive Player of the Week after recording a pair of shutouts during opening week of the season. With seven stops on the weekend and wins over the visiting Sewanee Tigers and Southern Virginia in the Meredith Soccer Classic, Loch was named to the All-Tournament team.
The Angels edged Sewanee 1-0 Friday afternoon with a goal from Cassie Padilla. Saturday, Meredith capped off the weekend with 2-0 victory over SVU.
Meredith remains in Raleigh next weekend playing host to new USA South member Pfeiffer University and Atlanta's Emory Eagles in the Esprit DIII Classic. Thirteenth-ranked Johns Hopkins will face off Pfeiffer and Emory as well during the Saturday and Sunday event.
