Medina Named to Soccer Buzz Elite Team of the Week

Oct. 18, 2006

Malibu, Calif. - After a standout weekend, which included the assist on the game-winner which lifted the Waves over San Diego in overtime and the game-winning goal during Sunday's 1-0 upset of No. 3 Santa Clara, forward Sophia Medina was named to the Soccer Buzz "Elite Team of the Week."

The freshman totals three goals and one assist for seven points on the season and scored her first two goals in her collegiate debut against Idaho. The Downey, Calif. native also earned the West Coast Conference (WCC) "Player of the Week."

Medina is the only WCC player named to the team and the second Pepperdine player to earn the honor. Sophomore Emily Wynne notched the accolade in early September.

The Pepperdine women's soccer team continues WCC action this weekend when it travels north to face Saint Mary's on Friday in a 3 p.m. match followed by a 1 p.m. match on Sunday against San Francisco.
