Amanda Carmosino

INDIANAPOLIS – Hanover women's soccer freshman, Amanda Carmosino (Noblesville, Ind.), has recently been announced as the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference defensive player of the week.

Carmosino led a defensive front that posted a pair of shutout wins last week over Transylvania and Anderson, giving the squad a clean sheet in each of their last five outings.  Over the two matches, the first-year netminder logged over 170 minutes of action, making four saves in the process.

With the wins, Carmosino lowers her season goal against average to 0.41, which ranks first in the conference and 23rd across all of NCAA Division III. The freshman is also second in the HCAC in save percentage, .864, which is good enough for a top-50 national ranking as well.

As a team, Hanover is currently riding a program-record 14 match win streak, which has resulted in a first place position in the HCAC with a 7-0-0 mark.

The nationally-ranked Panthers can secure their seventh HCAC regular season title in the past 10 years with a victory at Mt. St. Joseph Wednesday, Oct. 24. The match between the top two sides in the conference table is slated to begin at 7 p.m. in Cincinnati, Ohio.
