For the fourth time in his collegiate career, Calvin sweeper back Greg Snapper has been named the MIAA Defensive Player of the Week in men’s soccer. A senior from Madison, Wis. (Madison West HS), Snapper led a strong Calvin defense at the Knights posted a pair of wins at the Cal Bergsma Memorial Tournament.
Snapper’s play helped the Knights defeat Wheaton, Ill., 2-1 and 12th-ranked Kenyon, Ohio, 1-0. Calvin has allowed only two goals in its first four games of the season.
Calvin returns to action this Friday and Saturday, competing at a tournament hosted by Wittenberg University. Calvin will face Otterbein Friday at 5:00 p.m. on the first day of competition and will then meet host Wittenberg on Saturday at 4:00 p.m.
The Knights are currently 3-1 overall. In posting wins over Wheaton and Kenyon last weekend, Calvin captured its fourth overall Cal Bergsma title including its first since 2006.
