LakePoint, Ga. – USC Upstate freshman goalkeeper Samantha Munyon has been named the ASUN Defensive Player of the Week, conference officials announced today. It is Munyon’s first career weekly honor.

The Columbus, Ga. native made her Upstate debut last week at Presbyterian College and made four saves as she earned her first career shutout in a 2-0 win on Wednesday. On Saturday at UNC Asheville, Munyon made five saves and earned her second consecutive shutout in a 1-0 win.

Munyon finished the week with a 0.00 GPA as Upstate recorded its first back-to-back shutouts for the first time since 2013.

Upstate returns to action tonight as the Spartans travel to Gardner-Webb for a 7 p.m. contest.
