Northern Oklahoma College Soccer named Lexi Albright, Rachael Chatterji, and Eli Little as Student Athletes of the Week for Oct. 4
Albright is a freshman, defender from Chickasaha, Okahoma, Rachael Chatterji, sophomore, defender from Enid, Oklahoma, and Eli Little, a sophomore midfielder from Muskogee, Oklahoma.
Albright and Chatterji led the defense to two shutouts this week and only gave up three shots in the 3-0 win over Murray State.
“Lexi and Rachael are a great pair,” said coach Michael DuRoy. “They are both so smart. Both are on the President’s Leadership Council. They pick up on concepts immediately. They both are vocal leaders. As a coach you hope for one of those players in your back line, having two is a luxury that most teams don’t have.”
Little saw his first playing time of the season in the Mavs 3-2 (OT) win over Murray State.
“We put Eli in to start the second half and he changed the game,” DuRoy said. “He controlled the midfield. He won a bunch of balls in the air and defended hard. We would not have won the game without his energy and effort.”
