Seattle University women's soccer senior defender Jordan Salisbury(Federal Way, Wash.) was named a Primetime Performer of the Week after helping the Redhawks (7-3) put together a perfect weekend of work at the UNLV NIKE Invitational.At the tournament, Salisbury was a major contributor in the Redhawks come-from-behind victory over host-UNLV on Sept. 16. After allowing the Rebels to score an early go-ahead goal, the veteran defender rallied the Redhawk defensive efforts to prevent UNLV from getting on the board again. Their efforts also allowed the SU offense to send in a pair of second half goals to earn a 2-1 victory.
Two days later, she connected with Mary Hill's free kick to head in the Redhawks opening goal in their 3-1 victory over San Diego State, who has been in the national rankings this season.
Salisbury has started in all 10 games this season and has had a significant part in Seattle U's three shutouts this year, including a 2-0 win over then-No. 8 Portland on Sept. 2. In addition, she has been an integral part of Seattle U's offensive efforts. She's scored three goals this season, all headers, and is the team's second-leading scorer.
"Jordan has had a great season thus far and I'm happy for her to receive this honor," said head coachJulie Woodward. "She's had an incredible year, not only in terms of her defending, but she also has had some offensive productivity for us. She has scored three unbelievable goals and is a natural leader. Jordan is a true competitor and has been a major part in our wins this season."
Salisbury, who is the second SU player to receive the CS360 weekly honor this season, and the Redhawks host their season home opener on Friday, Sept. 23, versus San Francisco. First kick is slated for 4 p.m. Primetime Performers of the Week

Fund Raiser for Corey Obungen; my good friend

The Redhawks with Corey after presenting him with a check to help pay for his medical expenses.

Amidst soccer practices, games and the start of the 2010-11 school year, the Seattle University women's soccer team took time to help one of their fans Corey Obungen. The 20 year old, who is a former football player at the University of Puget Sound, was injured in a swimming accident this past June leaving him paralyzed from the chest down. Since the beginning of the 2010 season, the Redhawks have been selling raffle tickets to raise money to help Obungen with his medical bills.

This past weekend the Redhawks presented Obungen with a check for $800, which will go directly to help his family pay for medical treatments that are not covered by his insurance.

Seattle University Soccer Student Athlete of the Week

Junior defender Renee Vandermause was recognized as SU's Featured Student-Athlete of the Week following a standout weekend of action in Southern California.Two days after scoring the game-winner for the Seattle University women's soccer team at UC Irvine, Renee Vandermause (Colbert, Wash.) earned her first Featured Student-Athlete of the Week honor on The junior defender has become an impact player this season seeing action in all four games played this year at outside defender, including making a pair of starts.

"Renee had a great pre-season, and has played significant minutes and contributed in every game thus far," said head coach Julie Woodward. "She is an amazing student, athlete and very well liked and respected by her teammates. She had a real solid weekend for us and lifted us to victory with an amazing game-winning goal against Irvine. I am excited for her and the season that lies ahead."
The Redhawk veteran has developed into a strong role on the team, contributing solid work during her minutes on the field and being the squad's biggest cheerleader when she is on the bench. Against UC Irvine on Aug. 29, she subbed into the game in the second half. After SU tied the game 1-1 at the end of the first period, she found the back of the net for the first time of her career. Seattle U took a corner kick, which the Anteater backline attempted to clear out. Vandermause controlled the ball off the UCI deflection out of the box and slammed in the game-winning goal from 20 yards out.
In addition to giving the team the go ahead goal and game-winner, teammate and senior captain Kara Kuttler expressed the impact Vandermause had on the game, saying that she won the game for the team before she was even on the field. Her teammates were able to hear her cheering on the sidelines, encouraging them to battle back after going down early, and when she entered the game she helped lift the team to their second consecutive victory.
A complete student-athlete, Vandermause currently boasts a 3.631 cumulative grade point average as a civil engineering major with a focus on environmental engineering. She is a member of the Society of Women Engineers and Engineers Without Boarders.
Vandermause and the Redhawk soccer team will return to action this Friday, Sept. 3, as they travel to Cheney, Wash. to take on Eastern Washington in a 4:30 p.m. match. Two days later they will return home to host the WCC's Gonzaga Bulldogs in a 1 p.m. contest at Championship Field.
