SAN BRUNO, Calif. -- The West Coast Conference has named its Women's Soccer Player of the Week for October 14, 2013.

Santa Clara senior Julie Johnston is the West Coast Conference Women's Soccer Player of the Week. Johnston scored the game-winning goal in the Broncos 1-0 shutout victory over San Diego on Thursday.
