Notre Dame's Jen Grubb Named BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Week
PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Notre Dame sophomore defender Jen Grubb has been named BIG EAST defensive player of the week for her performance this past weekend. Grubb anchored the Notre Dame defense which held BIG EAST opponents Pittsburgh and West Virginia to a combined total of three shots.
The Irish defeated Pittsburgh 5-0, and West Virginia 3-0, outshooting the two teams by 68-3. Grubb, the only freshman defender to earn All-America honors in 1996, also helped the Irish offensively as she scored her first goal of the season against Pittsburgh.
Second-ranked Notre Dame, unbeaten at 6-0-0, plays host to top-ranked North Carolina on Friday, September 19, at the adidas/Lady Footlocker Classic.
