McEachern Earns ACC Defensive Player of the Week Honors

Red Shirt Freshman helps Pitt go 2-0 to begin the season

PITTSBURGH – After a pair of back-to-back shutouts to open her collegiate career, Pitt goalkeeper Katelyn McEachern has been named the ACC’s Defensive Player of the Week.

McEachern played the entirety of both games, recording 190:42 minutes in 1-0 wins over Hofstra and Duquesne. The redshirt freshman tallied eight saves, as the Panthers shutout both the Pride and the Dukes en route to a 2-0 opening record.

The league award is the first for the program since Taylor Pryce was named the ACC Co-Offensive Player of the Week on Sept. 29, 2015 following a pair of game winning goals over Wake Forest and Louisville.
