Adriana Gunkel Named NEAC Defensive Player of the Week

GANSEVOORT, N.Y.— Keuka College goalkeeper Adriana Gunkel was named the North Eastern Athletic Conference's Women's Soccer Defensive Player of the Week on Monday afternoon.

Gunkel had a strong introduction to collegiate soccer of Friday night. The freshman got the start in goal and made seven saves as Keuka College defeated Utica College in overtime. It was the first time that Keuka has defeated Utica College in program history.

The Wolves took the loss on Saturday 4-0 to Hartwick, but the damage could have been worse against a quality Hawks side. Gunkel made 10 saves in the game for Keuka.

Keuka College will travel to the University of Rochester to face the Yellowjackets on Wednesday night. The Wolves will then open their home schedule on Sunday, September 10 as they host Pitt.-Bradford at 1pm and the Jephson Community Athletics Complex.
