COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Utah junior forward Adele Letro and UNLV sophomore defender Dani Morin have been named Mountain West Conference Women's Soccer Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week, respectively.
Letro, a native of Davis, Calif., scored the game-winning goal in both of Utah's wins last week. She scored both goals in a 2-0 win over Cal Poly, marking her sixth multi-goal game of her career.
Against Washington, Letro assisted on a second-half goal, which tied the game at 2-2 and eventually scored the game-winner in a 3-2 victory. Over the weekend, the forward scored on half her shot attempts (3-of-6). Her three-goal weekend moved her into fourth place on Utah's career goal list with 29.
This is Letro's third career MWC Offensive Player of the Week honor.
Morin, a Saugus, Calif., native, was the anchor for UNLV's defense over the weekend, leading the team to a win over 23rd-ranked Washington State and a scoreless tie vs. Iowa State.
