SCU Sweeps Weekly League Honors

Sept. 12, 2005

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - What a great weekend it was to be a Bronco.

Not only did the Santa Clara University men's and women's soccer and volleyball teams roll to a 6-1 record last weekend, they did it with style, class and a great deal of teamwork.

And, brother did it pay off.

On Monday the West Coast Conference office recognized the efforts of three Bronco student-athletes who stood head and shoulders above the opposition as Santa Clara swept the league's weekly awards.

Women's soccer sophomore Jordan Angeli was named the WCC's Women's Soccer Player of the Week, while junior Keith DeVey was honored with the men's soccer award and senior Cassie Perret earned the volleball honor.

Jordan Angeli scored the game winner against Notre Dame.

Angeli scored twice in the fifth-ranked women's soccer team's 2-1 victory over previously top-ranked and defending national champion Notre Dame Friday night in Buck Shaw Stadium. The Lakewood, Colo. native, who had not played the forward position prior to this season, was named the most valuable player at the Santa Clara adidas Classic and is the team's scoring leader.

DeVey, a native of Kula, Hawai'i, scored twice in fourth-ranked SCU's 4-0 shutout of previously undefeated Georgetown in the Maryland adidas Classic in College Park, Md. He almost added a third goal in the second half of the Broncos' 3-1 loss at fifth-ranked Maryland on Friday night. DeVey was also named the WCC Player of the Week last week after scoring game-winning goals against then-number two ranked UCLA and Fullerton.

Cassie Perret was named the national player of the week.

A native of Menlo Park, Calif., Perret averaged 4.70 points, 4.10 kills, 2.10 digs, and 1.20 blocks per game while hitting at a stellar .415 clip to lead the now 17th-ranked Bronco volleyball team to the championship of the Bronco Invitational at the Leavey Center. She was also named the Sports Imports/AVCA National Player of the Week for her efforts.

The Bronco spikers defeated Fresno State, 15th-ranked Arizona and 18th-ranked UC Santa Barbara by a combined score of 9-1, only dropping a single game against the Wildcats.

The three WCC Bronco sports teams are a combined 13-1-1 on the season and all three are ranked among the nation's top-20 programs.
