Oct. 24, 2007
CINCINNATI-- The University of Cincinnati's Andrea Kaminksi (Noblesville, IN/Noblesville) and Erin MacDonald (St. Catharine's, Ontario/West Park Secondary) have been named to the Soccer Buzz Magazine Elite Team of the Week after their efforts in leading the Bearcats to a 1-0-1 weekend in BIG EAST play.
Kaminski led the Bearcats to an undefeated weekend, shutting out USF on seven saves and posting 19 saves in UC's 1-1 draw with Marquette, which entered the match 11-2-2 on the season. Her 19 saves were the highest mark in the BIG EAST this season and were one off of the pace of the NCAA leader. The second-year starter has made 102 saves this season, which leads the BIG EAST.
Sophomore MacDonald was tabbed as BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll choice after scoring three goals over the weekend. MacDonald tallied a pair of goals, including the game winner, against USF on Oct. 19 and added the equalizer in UC's 1-1 draw with Marquette on Oct. 21. She leads the Bearcats with seven goals, seven assists and 21 points.
It marked the first Soccer Buzz National Elite Team of the Week honor for a UC player since Heather Herweh was named to the team on Oct. 1, 2002.
The Bearcats travel to Georgetown and Villanova this weekend, controlling their own destiny in the BIG EAST National Division race. UC is in a fifth-place tie with Seton Hall and Villanova with 10 points. Georgetown is two points ahead going into the final weekend of the season.
