The West Coast Conference announced its Players of the Week awards as San Diego captured the men's soccer and volleyball honors with James Cohn and Kelsi Myers, while Portland represented the women's soccer winner with Michelle Enyeart.
Cohn was a two-match starter this weekend with one goal and two shots on goal. Cohn was a key reason the Toreros defeated Saint Mary's and Santa Clara to remain in first place with his tenacious defense helping out the Torero backfield. Cohn has established himself as a key asset on both the offensive and defensive side of play.
Myers helped lead the Toreros to a 3-1 win over Saint Mary's College this past week and into a tie for first place in the WCC. Myers recorded a double double with 53 assists and 14 digs in the win over Saint Mary's, breaking the Gaels' five-match win streak. On the season, Myers is averaging 12.07 assists per set, which is good for fourth best in the nation. Myers leads the WCC with 736 assists ands has helped direct the Toreros to a team attack percentage of .265, tied for the best in the WCC.
Enyeart scored three goals and had three assists as Portland defeated Pepperdine and Loyola Marymount 6-0 and 4-0, respectively. In Friday's win at Pepperdine, Enyeart scored the first two goals of the match. She then added the game-winner and assisted on the final three goals against LMU on Sunday. Enyeart picks up her second WCC Player of the Week award this year (Sept. 14) and third of her career.
