ELMHURST, Ill.-Centenary women's soccer player, freshman Courtney Morris notched her first Summit League Player of the Week award as she received Offensive Player of the Week after an impressive first week of collegiate soccer. 

Morris captured the honor after recording five points and leading Centenary to a 2-0 record on the week. The freshman netted her first collegiate goal in the 14th minute of the win over Letourneau.  That goal also proved to be the game-winner. She also added an assist on Chelsea Granger's goal one minute later.

In the Ladies' 2-1 win over Arkansas-Little Rock, Morris scored the first goal of the game in the 12th minute.

Kalani Bertsch nabbed Defensive Player of the Week honors after helping North Dakota State to a 1-0-1 record at the Baylor Tournament. The sophomore earned her fourth career shutout in a 0-0 draw against Baylor, while collecting 11 saves vs. the Bears. She also earned the victory in a 2-1 Bison win over Lamar Sunday, collecting five saves. For the week, Bertsch had 16 saves, a .941 save percentage and a 0.45 GAA.

Centenary will be back in action on Thursday, Sept. 3, when it takes on Prairie View A&M at 7 p.m. on Mayo Field.
