Kristen Marsman Named MIAA Women’s Soccer Defensive Player Of The Week

Hope College’s Kristen Marsman has been selected the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association Women’s Soccer Defensive Player of the Week for games October 16-21.

The junior defender from Holland, Michigan (Holland Christian HS) helped the Flying Dutch post two shutouts in MIAA play last week and clinch an outright MIAA championship.

The Marsman-anchored defense yielded only two shots in a 2-0 victory at Calvin on Wednesday and one shot in a 5-0 victory against Saint Mary’s on Saturday at Van Andel Soccer Stadium.

Hope extended its string of shutouts to a season-high six games.

The Flying Dutch have not allowed a goal in the past 567 minutes, 44 seconds of play.

Hope is outscoring MIAA opponents by a 42-2 margin this season.
