Cusick Named to BIG EAST Honor Roll; MU Checks in at No. 25 in the Soccer America Poll
Sept. 1, 2008
MILWAUKEE - Following back-to-back victories over Ohio State and Samford, Marquette women's soccer senior defender Shannon Cusick was named to the BIG EAST Honor Roll announced Monday by league officials. It is Cusick's first honor of the season. Also, the Golden Eagles (3-0) checked in at No. 25 in the latest Soccer America poll released Monday.
The senior defender played an integral part of MU's stifling backline that allowed just five total shots over two games last weekend. For her efforts, Cusick was named to the Milwaukee Cup All-Tournament Team.
The Golden Eagles will be back in action Wednesday as they take on cross-town rival No. 24 Wis.-Milwaukee at 7 p.m. at Valley Fields.
