Marquette athletes are represented in all three sets of weekly conference awards.

Women's soccer goalkeeper Amanda Engel earned her first honors from the Big East as she was named Goalkeeper of the Week for her efforts last week. Engel started both of Marquette's shutout wins against Seton Hall and Rutgers over the weekend, totalling seven saves in 156 minutes of action. The Big East made an interesting decision, as they had a freshman (Notre Dame's Cari Roccaro) win Offensive Player of the Week as well, so instead of choosing between Engel and Roccaro for Rookie Of The Week, they gave that award to DePaul's Elise Wyatt for her five point week. Senior Ally Miller was also named to the Weekly Honor Roll for her part in leading Marquette's defense in the two shutouts.

Over on the men's side of the pitch, Paul Dillon was named to the Big East's Weekly Honor Roll. Marquette only played one match, but they were dominant while defeating DePaul 5-0, and Dillon was a strong part of the defense that finished that clean sheet. Dillon also recorded an assist on MU's second goal of the match.

Elizabeth Koberstein was named to the Weekly Honor Roll for women's volleyball. Like the men's soccer team, the volleyball team only had one match last week, but Koberstein was outstanding in it. As Marquette was on the way to sweeping Syracuse 3-0, Koberstein recorded 39 assists. Koberstein's 11.39 assist per set average is third in the Big East, so it's quite an accomplishment for her to average 13 for a match.
