Indianapolis, Ind. - After tallying three of the Bulldogs' five goals in a pair of Horizon League victories last weekend, Butler sophomore forward Carrie Twyman was named the league's Player of the Week. The league office made the announcement on Monday (Oct. 29).
Twyman provided the bulk of the Butler scoring in their final two matches of the year in helping the Bulldogs to a fourth-place finish in the Horizon League standings and a home match in the league championship quarterfinals. She tallied her first score at Youngstown State on Friday (Oct. 26) as the Bulldogs went on to a 2-1 victory over the Penguins before notching two more strikes against Cleveland State in the Bulldogs' 3-1 victory over the Vikings.
"Carrie has been playing some of her best soccer in the later part of our season," head coach Tari St. John said. "She committed herself to working on her weaknesses as a player a month or so ago and, as a team, we are beginning to see her hard work pay off. She has solidified herself as a serious offensive threat for any team we face."
Twyman is the second Bulldogs to be recognized with the league's weekly award. Junior midfielder Angie Muir received the honor on Sept. 17.
Butler opens up the 2007 Horizon League Championship Quarterfinals at home against Valparaiso on Saturday (Nov. 3) at 12:00 noon in the Butler Bowl.
