HILO, Hawaii – After snagging five saves for a shut-out victory this past weekend, Vulcan freshman goalkeeper Lolo Retsky (Calabasas, Calif./Sierra Canyon School) was named Pacific West Conference Defender of the Week for Sept. 5-11, 2022.
Retsky’s five saves were integral in helping the Hawai’i Hilo women’s soccer team hand Stanislaus State of the California Collegiate Athletic Association its first loss on the young season.
The Calabasas, Calif.-native also got the win in the Vulcans’ 3-1 victory over San Francisco State last Thursday.
Team of the Week
Along with Retsky, the Hawaii Hilo women’s soccer team as a whole was selected as the PacWest Team of the Week with two key-regional wins as the Vulcans have started the season 3-0-0.
UH Hilo’s defeated opponents were voted No. 6 (Stanislaus State) and No. 7 (San Francisco State) in the CCAA Preseason Coaches Poll. The Vulcans also previously beat Cal State East Bay, whom was voted at the fourth spot.
Point Loma Nazarene’s Zoe Crockett was selected as PacWest Player of the Week.
