MILWAUKEE - What a week for senior defender Kerry McBride (Elm Grove, Wis.). Along with earning BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Week honors, McBride was also named to Soccer America's Team of the Week.

McBride was integral in MU's defensive effort in two shut-out wins over Western Michigan and Northwestern as she helped limit the Wildcats and the Broncos to nine total shots with only two on goal.

Marquette climbed one spot in the Soccer America Top 25 to No. 13 and held steady at No. 12 in the NSCAA Continental Tire Top 25. MU checked in at No. 2 in the Northeast Region rankings this week.

The Golden Eagles will look to extend their 11-game home unbeaten streak Friday, Aug. 26 when they take on Saint Louis in the first game of the 12th annual MKE Cup at Valley Fields. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.

Friday is Camper Reunion Night. All Marquette soccer summer campers will receive free admission to the game. Also, all Marquette students in attendance are invited to attend a halftime tailgate with a free taco bar provided by Qdoba.
