Junior Courtney Seelhorst added another honor this week after being named one of CollegeSoccer360.com's Primetime Performers of the Week. Seelhorst adds this nomination to the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week award Tuesday.
Seelhorst notched 12 saves and surrendered just one goal last weekend as the Bears swept two weekend matches with a 2-1 victory over Nebraska on Friday and a 1-0 win against No. 22 Colorado on Sunday. The junior's shutout of Colorado secured BU's first win over a ranked opponent since 2005 and marked Seelhorst's sixth shutout of the season. Her efforts propelled Baylor to back-to-back conference wins for the first time since 2007 and its best record since 2000.
It marked the first time Seelhorst has won this award, and she is the first Bear to win since Lisa Sliwinski did so on Oct. 21, 2009.
