Priory grad Leslie Barkmann earns Big West soccer honors

 

Former standout Priory soccer player Leslie Barkmann of Cal Poly-SLO provided contributions on both ends of the field while in earning the Big West Defensive Player of the Week award in women's soccer.

The junior was named the defensive Most Valuable Player of the Viking Soccer Classic as the Mustangs limited Seattle and Boise State to a combined one goal in a pair of victories last week.

Barkmann also stepped up with the game-winning goal in the 2-1 triumph over the Redhawks and delivered the game-winning assist in a 3-0 shutout of the Broncos.

In women's volleyball, Palo Alto High grad Allison Whitson helped UC Davis go 4-0 at the Pioneer Classic during the weekend in Denver, Colo. The Aggies improved to 10-1 after stretching their winning streak to five.

Whitson had 15 kills to help UC Davis upset Missouri in the final match, 25-16, 21-25, 25-11, 25-19. Mizzou (10-2) reached the Round of 16 at last season's NCAA Tournament.

Earlier on Saturday, UC Davis defeated Texas-San Antonio, 25-23, 25-20, 25-15; as Whitson served up 11 straight points in the third set. She finished the four-match tourney with 54 kills and 41 digs and was named to the all-tournament team.

The Aggies visit Sacramento State on Tuesday night before hosting the Aggie Invitational this weekend.
