Freshman named Great Midwest Athletic Conference 'Women's Soccer Athlete of the Week'
November 04, 2013
Ursuline College freshman Cassie Cripe has been named the Great Midwest Athletic Conference 'Women's Soccer Athlete of the Week,' the conference office announced Monday (Nov. 4) afternoon.
The rookie from Westfield, Indiana, was a major reason why the Arrows were able to pull out an overtime win against the defending G-MAC champion Trevecca Nazarene University Trojans in Saturday's (Nov. 2) first round of the conference postseason tournament.
The Arrows fell behind the Trojans 2-1 with just over 21 minutes left in the second period but UC tied the match with less than eight minutes to go on senior Amanda Levaskevich's second goal of the game, this one coming on a Cripe assist. Just 1:27 into overtime, Cripe scored the walk-off game-winner to send her team to the conference semifinals.
On the season, Cripe has eight goals and eight assists for 24 points. She ranks third on the team in goals and points and is tied for second in assists, one behind junior Anna Feitl. Currently, she ranks fifth in the conference in points, sixth in goals and is tied for fourth in assists.
Cripe and her teammates will take on regular season champion Cedarville University on Thursday (Nov. 7) night at 7:30 p.m. in the second G-MAC semifinal.
