COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.- Senior goalkeeper Kristen Winters was named the Mountain West Conference Goalkeeper of the Week announced today by the league office. It is her second career conference player of the week honor.
Winters earned her 20th career shutout and third of the season after playing the entire 110 minutes in the scoreless tie against defending SEC champion Auburn last Friday. She is the all-time leader at UNM in career shutouts.
With UNM's 3-0 victory over Syracuse on Sunday, Winters was credited with her 22nd career win, the most wins on the all-time list. Winters played 86 minutes in the game against Syracuse. Freshman Shannon Adragna played the remainder of the game as keeper, making the 3-0 win a team shutout in the statistics book.
The Lobo senior made a total of six saves over the weekend, boosting her total career saves to 290 which ranks third on the all-time list at New Mexico.
Winters (Lakewood, Colo.) has started in every game since the 2002 season and currently has 5,747 minutes under her belt as one of the Lobos' main starters.
