LANCASTER, PA – Sophomore goalkeeper Robyn Lipschultz of the 11th-ranked Johns Hopkins women’s soccer team has been named the Centennial Conference Defensive Player of the Week for her stellar play in net during the Blue Jays’ 2-0 week.
Getting the start Wednesday on the road against McDaniel, Lipschultz turned away all three shots she faced to earn her fifth shutout of the season. The five shutouts are third most in the Centennial Conference. The Wayzata, MN native also saw action in Hopkins’ 2-0 victory over 23rd-ranked Swarthmore. In her 36:56 minutes of play she turned away both shots she faced and made a fantastic kick save on a shot by Garnet forward Marin McCoy, who leads the conference in points and goals. Lipschultz currently leads the conference with a perfect save percentage and a goals-against average of 0.00 and has a record of 5-0-0.
Hopkins is 12-2-1 with a 7-0 mark in league play and sealed a spot in the conference tournament with its win over Swarthmore. JHU will return to the field on Saturday, October 21 as the team will head to Ursinus for a noon game.
