Jackrabbit Gets Award

Jackrabbit Gets Award

The Summit League honored South Dakota State’s Katie McNeary with the Defensive Player of the Week award for her performance last weekend.

McNeary and the Jackrabbit defense posted two shutout-wins in their opening weekend of conference play. She also scored the game-winning goal against Western Illinois on Friday.

South Dakota State has posted seven shutouts in their first 12 games of the 2013 season.

McNeary is the second Jackrabbit player to win The Summit League Defensive Player of the Week award in 2013. Nicole Inskeep has won the award twice this year.

Currently the Jackrabbits are 7-3-2 overall and 2-0-0 in Summit League play.

SDSU returns to Fishback Soccer Park on Oct. 11 as they host in-state rival South Dakota in the South Dakota Showdown Series. Game time is set for 6 p.m. The Jackrabbits will also host Omaha on Oct. 13 at 1 p.m.
