Women's Soccer

Getting to Know Junior Jenna Staudt

Sept. 13, 2017

WASHINGTON - The 18th-ranked Georgetown University women's soccer team is off for a few days following a win over St. Francis (Pa.) last Friday and a draw with nationally-ranked Rutgers on Sunday. After the games at home, the team is off until Sunday, Sept. 17, when the Hoyas play at Towson (1 p.m.).

During the week of training and recovery, GUHoyas.com had a chance to sit down and get to know the team a bit more. This week, junior Jenna Staudt (Bingham Farms, Mich./Detroit Country Day) sat down to talk about her background some of her favorite things.

Staudt was named the BIG EAST Conference Defensive Player of the Week on Monday after her performance in last week's games. Staudt, playing center back, anchored a back line that limited opponents to five shots all weekend and posted a pair of shutouts. The Hoyas limited St. Francis (Pa.) to only one shot in a 5-0 win. In the draw with Rutgers on Sunday, Staudt helped the Hoyas limit Rutgers to only four shots and keep the Scarlet Knights, who were averaging three goals a game, scoreless for the first time all season.
