HILLSBORO, Ore. -- In the final weekend of regular season play, sophomore goalkeeper Hannah Osmundson helped Lewis & Clark shutout Pacific Lutheran in a 0-0 draw last Sunday, and as a result, she was selected the Northwest Conference Defensive Student-Athlete of the Week. The conference office made the announcement on Monday.
Osmundson set a career high with 12 saves to keep the conference's best offense off the board. Helped by defenders Paige Barta, Gianna Losson, Alexa Hanson, Kori Swanson, Mali PetersonWood and Tasha Addington-Ferris, Osmundson saved four shots from the NWC's second-best scorer, Machaela Graddy, who played 69 minutes of regulation and both overtime periods. Over the weekend, Osmundson saved 13 of the 14 shots she faced, which tied for the most in the conference, and the team allowed just one goal.
In her second season with the Pios, the Psychology and Art (Studio) double major made 13 starts this year and finished with a 3-9-2 record. She allowed 24 goals, had a 1.90 goals-against average and made 66 saves. Sunday's shutout was her second of the year and seventh in her Lewis & Clark career. Coming into the season, Osmundson had hoped to volunteer at one of the pet clinics around the base of the campus.
Osmundon's previous career-best saves total was 10, set twice this season. Her shutout of PLU was her first since Oct. 7 when she allowed no goals against three shots on-goal in a 2-0 win over Pacific. The Lutes had been shutout three other times this season on their way to the NWC championship.
