Nerison Earns WIAC Athlete of the Week Honors
By: Kevin Meinholz, Sports Information Director
MADISON, Wis. - UW-Eau Claire women's soccer player Rachel Nerison (So.-Maple Grove, Minn.) has been named the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference athlete of the week for offense, conference spokesman Matt Stanek announced today.
Nerison helped the Blugolds take the lead twice in a match against 2008 NCAA Division III national runner-up and fifth-ranked Wheaton College (Ill.) on Sept. 12. She scored the game's first goal at 7:02 to take the 1-0 lead, and after Wheaton answered, Nerison found the net once again at 23:57 to give the Blugolds a 2-1 advantage. Unfortunately, UW-Eau Claire was unable to hold on and fell 4-2. In the Blugolds' 1-0 win against Augsburg College (Minn.) on Sept. 9, Nerison was credited with two shots. She leads the Blugolds with five points on the season.
