Junior Emily Fellows (Jr., Portland, Ore.) has been chosen as this week’s Northwest Conference Women’s Soccer Offensive Student-Athlete of the week after her outstanding performances against Whitworth and Whitman this past weekend. The honor was announced Tuesday by the league’s sports information directors.
With 11 seconds left in double overtime against Whitworth, Fellows headed in the game-winning goal to make the score 2-1, advantage Linfield.
