Rio Grande sweeps weekly RSC honors

MIDDLETOWN, Ohio — University of Rio Grande forward Ceira Goin and goalkeeper Morgen Nutter were named the River States Conference Women’s Soccer Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week, respectively, for the week of Sept. 21-27.

Goin, a freshman from Clayton, Ohio, scored both of the RedStorm’s goals in a 2-0 victory over WVU Tech. Both goals came in the second half.
