STANFORD 'KEEPER JANE CAMPBELL TABBED CS360 PRIMETIME PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Sophomore standout one of 13 players on week-1 Primetime Performers Honor Roll for Aug. 22-24.
 


Stanford sophomore goalkeeper
Jane Campbell (Kennesaw, Ga.) – who did not allow a goal during east-coast action versus two of the nation's top teams, tournament host North Carolina and fellow ACC power Duke – headlines the initial 2014 CS360 National Primetime Performers Weekly Honor Roll for Division I women's soccer, as selected by CollegeSoccer360.com. Campbell is the CS360 National Primetime Player of the Week and is joined by 12 others (listed below) in comprising the 2014 week-1 Primetime Performers Weekly Honor Roll for Division I women's soccer, covering games played during the opening weekend of the season (Aug. 22-24).


CAMPBELL 
– fresh off a stint with the U.S. Under-20 National Team that competed in the Under-20 World Cup – stopped all nine shots she faced en route to shutting out tournament host North Carolina (cs360 #4), with the Cardinal winning that 1-0 overtime game on Chioma Ubogagu's goal in the 99th minute . That victory ended Stanford's winless history in its head-to-head series vs. UNC (now 1-9-3). Five of Campbell's saves vs. UNC came in the first half, with 4,500-plus fans on hand for the marquee opening-day matchup. She added her eighth career shutout two days later, in the 1-0 win over cs360 #13 Duke.


Two of the 13 week-1 Primetime Performers hail from California hometowns, plus one each from: England, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Indiana, Kansas, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, Pennsylvania and Washington. The 13 honorees include four seniors, two of them fifth-years, plus four juniors, four sophomores and one freshman (six are forwards, three goalkeepers, two midfielders and a pair of defenders).


Headshots of all 13 week-1 Honor Roll members are included in the right sidebar, while detailed player capsules (with action photos) are featured at the bottom of this page.

... Selection for the CS360 weekly awards is based on any/all of the following "primetime" criteria (i.e. not solely based on raw stats):

• Performed at a high level in a game that could be key to the team's postseason qualification, typically in a game involving a top-50 team from the CS360 Composite National Rankings (or in a game involving a conference favorite/leader from a league not represented in the CS360 top-50).

• In general, preference is given based on the quality of the opponent, contribution to team success and other situational factors involved in the player's accomplishments.
• Exhibited strong leadership and/or involved in clutch performances, such as gamewinning goals, noteworthy comebacks, late scores, momentum-shifting play, all-around performance/consistency, filling role/gameplan, team spirit, 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 and/or against a traditional rival.
• (Note that more players from conferences outside the CS360 top-50 will be honored later in the season, as league races heat up and individual results have greater bearing on postseason qualification).
