Fr., F, Amstelveen, Netherlands/Keizer Karel College


Earning 10 points last week, Steinmetz collects her second Player of the Week accolade this season (Sept. 10). The Amstelveen, Netherlands, native scored three goals in Saturday's 9-0 rout of Davidson. Earlier in the week, Steinmetz scored a goal in MSU's 3-2 road loss to Central Michigan.

Defensive Player of the Week

Jen Beaumont, Penn State

Jr., GK, Chalfont, Pa./Central Bucks West


Beaumont recorded her third shutout of the year to help Penn State to a 5-0 win over Northwestern on Sunday. She made two saves on NU's only two shots of the contest, both of which came off penalty corners. In PSU's mid-week contest against Lock Haven, the Chalfont, Pa., native made five saves to keep the Lady Eagles off the scoreboard until the final minute of the game, as the Nittany Lions went on to win, 4-3. This is the second weekly laurel of Beaumont's career as she was honored last season.
