COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Nevada senior midfielder Sarah Schmeda and New Mexico junior defender Liz Nare have been selected Mountain West Women's Soccer Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week, respectively. This is the first Mountain West weekly award for Schmeda.
Schmeda scored her first two goals of the season in Nevada's 3-2 overtime win against Weber State last week. The Littleton, Colo., native sparked the Wolf Pack offense in the second half, scoring her first goal in the 73rd minute to tie the game, 2-2. Schmeda scored her second goal of the evening, and the game-winner, on a breakaway within the first two minutes of the overtime period, keeping Nevada undefeated at Mackay Stadium this season. Schmeda recorded four shots, three on goal, with two finding the back of the net.
This is the first career honor for Schmeda as well as the first of the 2012 season for the Pack.
