FREDERICK, Md.--Freshman Jessica Devine of the Hood College women's soccer team has been selected as the Hood College athlete of the week for the week ending Sept. 21.
Devine lifted the Blazers (3-4, 2-2 CAC) to a thrilling 1-0 double-overtime Capital Athletic Conference victory over Wesley College Saturday by netting the lone score of the contest with just 27 seconds remaining in the second extra session. The defender from Elkton, Md., booted in her second goal of the season off a pass from Katherine Rendon to help even the Blazers' league record at 2-2 on the year and kept Hood in sixth place in the conference standings.
The Blazers host former Atlantic Women's Colleges Conference rival Wilson College at 4 p.m. Thursday at Thomas Athletic Field before traveling to CAC foe Marymount University Saturday for a 5:30 p.m. tilt at Washington & Lee High School. The Saints are currently 2-5-1 on the season and open CAC play Wednesday against the University of Mary Washington.
