Markey and Kelly Picked for SCAC Women's Soccer Honors

San Antonio - Tiger seniors Colleen Markey and Julia Kelly have been selected as the respective Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Women's Soccer Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week.

The two student-athletes were major contributors to 12th-ranked Trinity's two shutout conference victories last week. The Tigers first blanked Schreiner (TX) University in a home matchup, and then took out the University of Dallas (TX) on the road. The Tigers won each game by a score of 4-0.

Markey scored two goals and dished out two assists in the week's matchups. The midfielder/forward posted the opening game-winner in the 18th minute against Schreiner and fired in her second goal in the 65th minute of action. Markey also assisted Halleanne Dure in Trinity's second goal of the game. Against Dallas, Markey participated in the game-winner by sending a cross to Hannah Booher in the 10th minute of play.

This season, Markey has scored six goals - including a team-best three game-winners - and is second on the team with 10 assists. Markey stands in seventh place on Trinity's career list with 30 assists, and has scored 23 goals.

Kelly was an offensive and defensive threat over the week. The midfielder and her teammates Schreiner to just two shots on Wednesday, and then Trinity did not allow Dallas to take a shot in the week's finale. The Tigers have posted nine shutouts this season, including the last three consecutively. Kelly also had two consecutive goals in the game against Dallas, marking the second multi-goal game of her career.

Trinity has won 11 games in a row and stands at 11-1-0 overall. The Tigers are undefeated in the SCAC with a 7-0-0 mark and have qualified for the SCAC Tournament. Trinity will defend its title November 3-5 at Shreveport, Louisiana.

The University's Alumni Weekend is coming up, and the Tigers will host Texas Lutheran University at 6:00 p.m. Friday, followed by a Sunday noon game against Southwestern (TX) University.
