Big Rapids, Mich. - For the first time in her collegiate career, Ferris State University women's soccer freshman goalkeeper Savanna Wojtanowski has attained Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) Defensive Athlete of the Week accolades.
The Bulldog rookie posted back-to-back shutout wins in net as the Bulldogs held onto second place in the GLIAC with two victories over Walsh and Malone last weekend (Oct. 4 & 6) in Big Rapids. She played the large majority of both games in net (162:36) and came away with a 0.00 goals against average and a 1.000% save percentage.
Wojtanowski had 14 saves combined between the two contests as FSU improved to 5-4 overall and 4-2 in the GLIAC with identical 3-0 wins over both the Cavaliers and the Pioneers.
Currently this season, the freshman keeper has played more than 600 minutes in net and owns a 0.73 goals against average along with a .848 save percentage. She's totaled 28 saves in net on the year while seeing action in eight of the Bulldogs' nine outings to date.
Overall, Ferris State has won four of its last five outings under first-year head coach Andy McCaslin.
This weekend, the Bulldogs play a single outing against archrival and nationally top-ranked Grand Valley State on Saturday (Oct. 12) starting at 7 p.m. (ET) under the lights in Allendale.
FSU will then return home to face Northwood in a non-league contest on Tuesday (Oct. 15) at 4 p.m. (ET) as FSU opens a three-match homestand.
