CHICAGO -- Eclipse Select Soccer Club alumna and University of Wisconsin senior goalkeeper Michele Dalton (Mount Prospect, Ill./John Hersey High School) was named the Big Ten Conference Defensive Player of the Week on Monday.
Dalton recorded a season-high 11 saves during Wisconsin's 2-0 victory over Nebraska on Friday in Lincoln, Neb. She also earned her fifth shutout of the season.
"It was probably one of the best goalkeeper performances I've seen in my career," Wisconsin head coach Paula Wilkins said after Friday's match. "She made a big difference because they were very good at creating some opportunities, and she really helped us keep a clean sheet."
