Senior Angela Brown is the first Westmont Women’s Soccer player this season to receive the Golden State Athletic Conference Women’s Soccer Player of the Week honors. Yesterday, she was named the Defensive Player of the Week after a week of strong and consistent defending.

The centerback from Menifee was a part of a defensive backline that held their first two GSAC opponents to a sum total of one goal. In addition to her defensive contributions, Brown also contributed offensively with effective ball distribution that jump-started many offensive drives.

Brown has three assists on the season and had the assist to Brooke Lillywhite’s goal that kicked off their GSAC season against San Diego Christian. Additionally, Brown has been the heart of the Warriors’ set pieces. Her other two assists came off of a corner kick against Soka University and a free kick against Northwestern Ohio University.

Westmont is currently 6-2 with a record of 2-0 in conference play, tonight the Warriors take on the Eagles of Biola.
