CLEVELAND - The Mid-American Conference announced its weekly field hockey awards on Tuesday. Earning MAC Defensive Player of the Week for Miami was junior goalkeeper Sarah Mueller (Berlin, Germany). It is the third time this season and fourth time in her career that she has won this honor.
Mueller made 16 saves in the two games she played this past weekend. She made four saves in a victory over Ball State on Saturday. Facing an offensive onslaught from 15th-ranked Michigan on Sunday, she stood tall and made 12 saves against the Wolverines, keeping the game scoreless until nearly the end of the first half. Mueller had an impressive .800 save percentage in 140 minutes of play.
Mueller was previously named MAC Defensive Player of the Week on Sept. 11 and again on Oct. 9.
The RedHawks will look to earn a share of the MAC regular season title and clinch the number one seed in the MAC Tournament when they host Ohio in the regular season finale Saturday at 10:30 a.m. The game is also senior day and at the conclusion of the contest a ceremony honoring Olivia Miller and Addie Absher will be held.
