WASHINGTON - Georgetown University junior women's soccer player Alexa St. Martin (Westford, Mass./Westford Academy) was named the BIG EAST Conference's Defensive Player of the Week on Monday. It is the second time in four weeks that St. Martin has earned the honor. In addition, redshirt freshman goalkeeper Emma Newins (Glen Allen, Va./Deep Run) was named to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll.
In addition to St. Martin's honor from the BIG EAST, she and the entire Georgetown back line were named to the TopDrawerSoccer.com Team of the Week. St. Martin was named to the team along with senior Claire Magliola (Mahwah, N.J./Mahwah), junior Mary Kroening (Woodbury, Minn./Woodbury) and freshman Neela Mohan (Encinitas, Calif./La Costa Canyon).
The Hoyas improved to 14-1-2 overall and 8-0-1 in the BIG EAST with a pair of wins over the weekend, extending their unbeaten streak to nine games. The Blue & Gray clinched at least a tie for the BIG EAST National Division title with a win over DePaul on Sunday, it's first-ever league title.
St. Martin has been a key component for a defensive unit that ranks first in the BIG EAST in goals-against average overall at 0.57 and in league games has allowed only one goal in nine games.
This past weekend, St. Martin played the full 90 minutes and helped to lead a defensive effort that held the Irish to just three shots on goal during a 2-0 win in a meeting of the top two teams in the division. On Sunday, she was part of a unit that limited DePaul to only one shot on goal - coming in the opening minute of overtime - in a 1-0 win for the Hoyas that clinched at least a share of the division title.
St. Martin was named BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Week on Sept. 17 after helping to secure shutouts over Seton Hall and then-No. 16 Rutgers.
Georgetown has earned Defensive Player of the Week honors three times this season, as junior defender Emily Menges (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) was named on Sept. 24 after helping lead the team to wins over UConn (4-0 and Providence (1-0).
Newins earned a spot on the Honor Roll after making four saves in the win over Notre Dame, including a diving stop during the second half when the game was scoreless, and posting a shutout against DePaul. This is the second-straight week she has been honored by the league as she was named the Rookie of the Week on Oct. 8 after combining for nine saves in a win at Cincinnati and a tie at Louisville.
The Georgetown defense, with shutout wins this past weekend, broke the school record for shutouts in a season with 12. The previous record of 11 was set in 2008. Newins also broke the individual season record for shutouts by a goalkeeper with 10, moving past Jackie DesJardin (C'11), who had nine in 2008.
Georgetown closes out the regular season on Friday, Oct. 19, visiting Villanova (6-8-3, 4-4-1). Kickoff at Villanova is slated for 3 p.m.
