Denz receives conference recognition

Denison freshman midfielder Anne Denz earned North Coast Athletic Conference Player of the Week honors in women's soccer after helping the Big Red pick up their first conference win of the season last weekend.

On Saturday, Denz logged a goal and an assist in DU's 3-1 victory over Hiram.  Already ahead 1-0, Denz scored what proved to be the game-winning goal in the fourth minute off an assist from senior Abby Kerbaugh.  Sixty-seven seconds later, the freshman returned the favor as she sent a cross to Kerbaugh that was placed under the crossbar from six yards out to give Denison a 3-0 lead.  Denz is second on the team in shots (26), third in goals (2) and fourth in points (5).

Denison (5-6, 1-1 NCAC) returns to the pitch on Saturday when they take on NCAC co-leader Wittenberg (6-5-2, 2-0 NCAC) at 7 p.m. in Springfield, Ohio.
