USAF ACADEMY, Colo. - Air Force freshman midfielder McKenna Fox and San Diego State senior midfielder Cat Walker have been selected Mountain West Co-Offensive Players of the Week, while New Mexico junior defender Lauren Irwin has been named MW Defensive Player of the Week.
Fox, a native of Alpine, Utah, notched Air Force's first hat-trick since 2001 in the Falcons' 4-1 victory over CSU-Pueblo on Sunday in Colorado Springs, Colo. The last Air Force women's soccer student-athlete to accomplish that feat was Jennifer Rowland against Georgia State on Sept. 21, 2001. Fox scored the first goal of the match just 2:49 into the contest and then added two more scores early in the second half. She also recorded an assist in the Falcons' 4-1 win over Colorado School of Mines on Friday night, finishing the two-game slate with four points.
Air Force, 2-0 for the first time since 2003, travels to Boise, Idaho this weekend for a pair of games, opening against Gonzaga on Friday, August 27 beginning at 2:30.
