Sept. 24, 2007

SAN BRUNO, Calif. - Junior forward Jen Mello of the University of San Diego women's soccer team was named the West Coast Conference Co-Player of the Week, the conference office announced Monday afternoon.

Mello, who transferred to USD from cross-town rival San Diego State University, helped lead the Toreros to a 2-0 record this past week. Mello scored her first two goals in a Torero uniform, both of them were game-winners. Mello was able to net the difference maker in USD's 2-1 overtime win over UC Irvine this past Friday. Then on Sunday, Mello's goal in the 57th minute was again the difference maker in a 3-1 win over UC Riverside. Mello is now one of three toreros to tally two goals.

Mello and the 22nd-ranked Toreros will return to action on Friday as they host Cal State Northridge in a 7 p.m. non-conference match at USD's Torero Stadium.
