Senior forward Zakiya Bywaters (Las Vegas, Nev.) has been named to the Top Drawer Soccer National Team of the Week for the week of Sept. 10-16.

In a less than five-minute span, Bywaters had two goals and an assist in the Princeton victory. She had an assist on Taylor Smith's goal at 21:37, scored her first goal of the game on a chip over the goalkeeper's head at 23:33 and then added a second at 25:54 on a breakaway. Against Pepperdine, she scored the game-winning goal at 10:44 and added another in the 53rd minute. Bywaters now has a team-leading six goals and 14 points, all career-highs.
