KANSAS CITY, Mo. (August 24, 2022) – United Soccer Coaches announced its College Player of the Week awards on Wednesday afternoon, with one student-athlete representing NCAA Division I women’s soccer.

NCAA Division I Women:  Katie Soderstrom (Butler)

Katie Soderstrom was key in Butler’s two victories over the weekend scoring one goal in each match, including the lone goal in a win at No. 9 Michigan. The redshirt senior’s game-winner came in the 63rd minute against the Wolverines and ultimately gave the Bulldogs the top-10 win. Soderstrom tallied nine shots during opening weekend, six of which were on goal. Her nine shots were second-amongst Big East Conference players. She also added one assist against Western Michigan.

Each Wednesday during the college regular season, United Soccer Coaches selects a men’s and women’s Player of the Week for NCAA Divisions I, II, and III and Junior College competition based on nominations from schools and conferences. Nominations are due every Tuesday by 10 a.m. CT to be considered.
