LOCK HAVEN, Pa. – Gannon University redshirt senior and former Harbor Creek standout Taylor Lewis was named PSAC West Women’s Soccer Western Division Athlete of the Week.
Lewis recorded a hat trick last Wednesday in a 5-0 win over Clarion University, with all of her goals coming in the first half. The trio of goals upped her season total to a team-leading 10 and also moved her into a tie for second place with Mani Brieckner (2012-15) on Gannon’s all-time career goals list with 46 total. Both players trail the 51 career goals from all-time leader Amanda Sharbaugh (2008-11.) The award was the third of her career.
Lewis has also assisted on three goals this season, increasing her career total to 20 (fifth-most all-time) and is ranked third all-time in Gannon career points with 113.
After a runner-up finish in the PSAC West, the second-seeded Golden Knights (11-2-3 overall) are gearing up for the postseason – the PSAC quarterfinals begin on Tuesday, Nov 9 as three-seed Slippery Rock visits McConnell Family Stadium for the second time in just four days. The two teams played to a 0-0 draw through two overtimes last Saturday in a match that saw Gannon drop to 10 players in the first half.
