Sept. 12, 2005

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Junior forward Allie Kueny was chosen Big West Player of the Week after lifting UC Santa Barbara to the championship at the Maryland/Adidas Classic this past weekend.

In Thursday's 2-0 win over Rutgers, Kueny attempted three shots and assisted on a goal by freshman forward Genelle Ives. In Sunday's 2-1 title match victory over Villanova, Kueny scored her first goal of the season to give the Gauchos a lead they never relinquished. In addition, she led both teams with four shots in the contest.

Following the tournament on Sunday, Kueny was selected the Offensive Most Valuable Player.

The two-game winning streak gives UCSB a 3-3 record on the season. The Gauchos host Hawaii in a 7:00 p.m. match on Wednesday at Harder Stadium.
