CollegeSoccer360.com Primetime Performers of Week #5  (Sept. 13-19)

Colorado College 'keeper Caitlin Hulyo earns top honors.

Colorado College junior goalkeeper 
Caitiln Hulyo (Lititz, Pa.) – who made 12 saves in a scoreless tie vs. #14 Oklahoma State – has been named the CS360 Primetime Player of the Week for Division I women's soccer, as selected by CollegeSoccer360.com for the middle week of September (13th-19th). Hulyo is joined by 11 other players (listed below), in comprising the week-5 CS360 Primetime Performers of the Week.

Hulyo made 16 saves without allowing a goal, during 200 minutes of action over the past week. Her career-best 12 saves earned CC the tie with Oklahoma State (#14 in the CS360 Composite National Rankings), as the Tigers improved to 4-1-3 and remained unbeaten over their past six games (3-0-3). Cowgirls 'keeper Adriana French countered with seven saves in the scoreless draw.

In addition to turning away the 12 shots on frame, Hulyo's busy day included dealing with seven corner kicks and 24 total shots from an Oklahoma State team (7-1-1) that also has not lost in its past six games and was coming off a 6-0 rout of Mississippi (the Cowgirls had racked up 16 goals in their previous four games).

Hulyo was tested early (6'), saving a follow-up header by Kyndall Treadwell. Midway through the second half, she elevated to grab a 20-yard blast by Katie Richardson (73') and then made a big save 10 minutes later, diving to deflect Krista Lopez' shot from the top of the box.

In the frantic second overtime period, Hulyo saved a point-blank deflection off Whitney Wernimont and then dove to her right to stop a Taylor Mathews free-kick from the top of the box (the tricky shot eluded a five-player defensive wall). 

Hulyo – the third CC player to earn Primetime Performer honors during the past two seasons – recurrent

ly leads Conference USA with a 0.58 goals-against avg., a .904 save pct. and five shutouts (giving her 15 in her career). She was a CUSA all-freshman team selection in 2008 before taking over as a full-time starter in 2009.


Selection for the CS360 weekly awards is based on any/all of the following "primetime" criteria (i.e. not solely based on raw stats):
• Must have been playing in a game involving a top-50 team from the CS360 Composite National Rankings (or a preseason conference favorite), or performed at a high level in a game that is key to the team's postseason qualification.
• Involved in clutch performances, such as gamewinning goals, noteworthy comebacks, late scores, team leadership, etc.
• Overcame adversity or extreme circumstances (for the team and/or individual).

• Bonus consideration is given for key performances away from team's home field.

• In general, preference is given based on the quality of the opponent and situational factors involved in the player's accomplishments.

The other 11 players on the week-5 Primetime Performer list include: Milwaukee jr. forward Sarah Hagen (Appleton, Wis.) ... North Carolina 5th-year sr. midfielder Ali Hawkins (Encinitas, Calif.) ... West Virginia sr. defender Erica Henderson (Rochester, N.Y.) ... Central Florida so. F Tishia Jewell (Satellite Beach, Fla.) ... Minnesota sr. defensive midfielder Kylie Kallman (Woodbury, Minn.) ... Boston College sr. F Brooke Knowlton (Rexford, N.Y.) ... Portland jr. F Halley Kreminski (Eagle, Idaho) ... Boston University jr. F Jessica Luscinski (Bedford, N.H.), Illinois sr. D Krystin Milller (Berkey, Ohio) ... and Seton Hall fr. F Kaitlyn Ritter (Hagerstown, Md.). Luscinski, Kallman and Miller each received final consideration for the week-5 Primetime Player of the Week honor.

Hagen and Luscinski are the first players to earn Primetime Performer honors twice this season (Kreminski also was a 2009 honoree), with Hagen now earning the Primetime distinction four times over the past two seasons (the CS360 Primetime honors began in 2009). Only two players – former Stanford forward Kelley O'Hara and current Cardinal standout Christen Press – have earned the Primetime Performer designation more times than Hagen (each with five).


The 12 week-5 selections include six forwards, two midfielders, three defenders and the goalkeeper Hulyo. They feature the fifth-year senior Hawkins, four seniors, four juniors, one sophomore and two freshmen. Two of the players are New York natives, with the other 10 hailing from 10 different home states: California, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Maryland, Minnesota, New Hampshire, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin
