INDIANAPOLIS – Freshman McKenzie Muchow earned her first player of the week honor after being named BIG EAST Rookie of the Week for her outstanding performance against the Michigan Wolverines on Sunday, Sept. 15.

Muchow scored the only goal of the match as the Bulldogs knocked off No. 11 Michigan by the final score of 1-0. Muchow scored from five yards out on a double assist from Mary Allen and Sophia Maccagnone.

The signature win was one of the biggest in Butler women's soccer history as the Wolverines came into Sunday's match undefeated at 6-0-0. Michigan was off to their best start in program history, but the Bulldogs grabbed an early lead in the first half and held on for the 1-0 victory. 

The Bulldogs will return to action with a road match at Wright State on Wednesday, Sept. 18.
