Lucas Wilgenburg Named MIAA’s Defensive Player of the Week in Men’s Soccer
Monday, October 05, 2009
For the second time in his career, Calvin College junior Lucas Wilgenburg has been named the MIAA’s Defensive Player of the Week in men’s soccer.
Wilgenburg, a junior from Visalia, Calif. (Central Valley Christian HS), backstopped the Calvin defense with his marking and heading skills as the Knights posted back-to-back shutouts, blanking Olivet, 1-0, and Albion, 5-0. With Wilgenburg playing a key role, Calvin has been unscored upon in its first four MIAA games and has allowed just two goals in 10 games this season.
Calvin returns to action on Wednesday when it hosts Kalamazoo at 4:00 p.m. at Calvin’s Zuidema Field.
