Valparaiso University midfielder Rachel Hoaglin (Lakeville, Minn./Academy of Holy Angels H.S.) has been named the Horizon League’s Women’s Soccer Player of the Week after extending her goal-scoring streak to four straight matches.

Hoaglin tallied the match-winning goals against both Green Bay (a 1-0 win) and Bowling Green (a 4-0 win) as the Crusaders improved to 5-3-1 overall and 1-0 in the Horizon League.

The junior has a team-leading five goals on the season and 11 total points.  For her career, she now has 13 goals, tied for seventh all-time at Valpo while registering 32 points, tied for ninth best.  Hoaglin now has five all-time match-winners as well, moving into a tie for sixth on the Crusaders’ career charts.

Valparaiso will return to action this weekend hosting the Crusader Classic.  The Brown and Gold will face Campbell on Friday night at 7:30 p.m. at Brown Field before entertaining Air Force on Sunday at 1:30 p.m. at Eastgate Field.
