Senior forward Sydney Leroux (Vancouver, BC, Canada/Horizon HS) of the UCLA women's soccer team was selected as the UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week for Oct. 17-23.
Leroux tallied a hat trick in the first half of the Bruins' 6-1 victory over Arizona on Friday evening at Drake Stadium. Her third career hat trick was notched in less than 11 minutes of play, as she scored in the 10th, 12th and 21st minutes. It also marked her team-leading sixth game-winning goal of the year. Leroux came back on Sunday, leading the team with four shots.
This is Leroux's second UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week honor of the season and fifth of her career.
