Sayler tabbed top defender
University of Jamestown junior goalkeeper Lauren Sayler was named North Star Athletic Association's defensive player of the week in women's soccer.
The Bismarck native turned away eight shots in the Jimmies' 1-0 conference victory over Bellevue (Neb.). Sayler's clean sheet was her fifth of the season, setting a career-best.
Jamestown (10-4-1, 1-0 NSAA) is receiving votes in the NAIA top 25 coaches' poll. The Jimmies are at Waldorf (Iowa) Saturday.
