CLEVELAND, Ohio – Highlighted by a pair of clean sheets throughout the week, freshman goalkeeper Patil Tcholakian was named the North Coast Athletic Conference's Player of the Week for the first time in her career following scoreless efforts against Oberlin and Wittenberg.
Helping the Big Red garner back-to-back 1-0 victories at home during the week, Tcholakian garnered three saves and zero goals allowed in the overtime win over Oberlin on Wednesday night before turning in another clean sheet with five saves against the Tigers on Saturday at Barclay-Thomsen Field.
Tcholakian made her biggest save of the week in the 89th minute against Witt when Taylor Vaugh-Stanton launched a shot inside the box and the freshman dove on top of it to stop any remaining offense from the Tigers. On the season, the Farmington Hills, Mich. native boasts an overall record of 8-2-2 on the season with 57 total saves and four individual shutouts.
Sitting at 8-2-2 overall and 3-0-2 in the NCAC, Denison will return to the pitch on Wednesday, October 17 when they host Thomas More University at 7 p.m.
