IRVING, Tex. - Rice senior Lauren LaGro has been named the Conference USA Defensive Player of the Week for soccer, the league office announced from its headquarters in Irving, Tex., on Monday (Oct. 29). Memphis junior forward Christabel Oduro has been named the C-USA Offensive Player of the Week.
LaGro played all 90 minutes on the backline in the Owls' 1-0 road victory over crosstown rival Houston on Friday. The senior team captain led a Rice defensive effort that limited the Cougars to just eight shots on the night, of which only one was on goal. In addition to her defensive responsibilities, LaGro also stepped up and converted a penalty kick for the lone goal of the game that clinched Rice a share of the C-USA regular season co-championship.
This is LaGro's first career Defensive Player of the Week honor. She joins teammtes Hayley Williams, Amy Czyz, Holly Hargreaves and Lauren Hughes as Owls who have won one of C-USA's weekly honors this season.
Oduro scored a pair goals in Memphis' regular season finale against UAB. She moved herself into third place in school history for career goals (32) and career points (83).
The Rice soccer team next competes in the C-USA Championship Tournament beginning on Wednesday (Oct. 31). The Owls meet longtime rival SMU the tournament's opening round in El Paso, Tex.
