Sophomore goalkeeper Quinn Josiah has been recognized as the Southwestern Athletic Conference’s Goalkeeper of the Week, the league office announced Monday afternoon.
“Quinn has been consistent in her performance and has a strong presence inside the 18-yard box that makes the team very confident, said head PVAMU coach Sonia Curvelo. “She is accountable for every play and did well executing her position. She has made big plays when we needed it, to keep us in the game. Her defense in front of her has done well.”
Josiah received the nod after a stellar performance in the team’s first win of the season, a 2-1 decision over Nicholls State yesterday. The New Market, Ontario, Canada native made eight saves in the victory and helped direct a defensive effort that limited the Colonels – who came into the contest leading the nation in shots per game and shots on goal per game while averaging better than three goals per match – to a single score.
So far this season, Josiah has made 15 saves on a .750 save percentage. This is the second time that the sophomore has earned SWAC Goalkeeper of the Week honors in her collegiate career.
Josiah and the Lady Panthers return to action on Sept. 13 for a home match against Texas A&M-Corpus Christi at 7 p.m. in the PVAMU Soccer Complex.
