Western Washington University goalkeeper Jamie Arthurs has been named the Red Lion/Great Northwest Athletic Conference Women's Soccer Defensive Player of the Week for Oct. 14-20.
Arthurs, a senior, had six saves in lowering her national-leading goals against average to 0.25 as the Vikings extended their consecutive shutout streak to a school-record nine with a pair of 2-0 wins against Montana State Billings and Northwest Nazarene.
Arthurs' streak of 810 minutes and 15 seconds without allowing a goal is the fourth longest team streak and third longest individual streak in GNAC history.
Arthurs has a school-record 13 shutouts this season, tying the GNAC single-season record set by Kaitlyn Jackson of Seattle University in 2007. Her nine consecutive shutouts tie the GNAC standard set by Seattle Pacific's Maddie Dickinson during the finals stages of the 2008 season and early in the 2009 campaign.
