Senior defender Catherine Calvert (Malibu, CA/Malibu HS) of the UCLA women's soccer team was selected as the UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week for Nov. 3-9.
Calvert scored the game-winning goal in double-overtime on Friday evening, helping the second-ranked women's soccer team defeat Oregon State, 2-1, clinching the program's sixth straight Pac-10 Championship in the process. Calvert, a senior, scored her first career goal in the 104th minute on a volley from seven yards out. She also helped the Bruins register the team's 16th shutout of the year on Sunday, as UCLA defeated Oregon, 2-0 in its final match of the regular season.
This is Calvert's first UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week honor of the season and of her career.
