Cal Poly senior goalkeeper Coral Hoover was named Big West Conference women’s soccer player of the week Tuesday, marking the third time this season she has won the award.
Hoover kept a blank slate last week shutting out UC Davis and Long Beach State in a pair of 1-0 Cal Poly wins. The shutouts were her seventh and eighth this season.
The Mustangs (11-5, 5-1) hold sole possession of first place in conference with 15 points.
Hoover (11-2) leads the Big West with a .68 goals against average. She has a .907 save percentage.
Cuesta women win soccer match
Sarah Wheeler scored both goals for the Cuesta College women’s soccer team in a 2-1 victory over Allen Hancock College.
The Bulldogs took an early 1-0 lead, but Wheeler’s first goal on an assist from Kaylah Nevius evened the score at halftime.
In the second half, Wheeler got by three defenders on her way to the game-winning goal.
“She managed to keep the ball tied to her shoelaces,” Cuesta head coach Bob Wilson said. “She got by the defenders and put it in the back of the net.”
The Cougars (3-7-3) outshot Hancock 25-3 and had 16 corner kicks.

Coast Union High graduate Ashlan Cate had a match-high 27 assists, and Sara Hoverstein had six kills and a .600 hitting percentage for the Cougars.
