Colorado's Paige Soenksen was named the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Rookie of the Week on Tuesday.

The Buffs freshman goalie helped CU to a 1-1 record last week against UC-Davis and then-No. 8 Stanford. She made nine saves in a 14-5 victory against UC-Davis and 19 in the 13-5 loss to the Cardinal.

Those 19 saves set a CU single-game record and tie the MPSF single-game mark.

Th honor is Soenksen's first Rookie of the Week title, but the freshman-laden Buffs have claimed four of the eight ROW titles awarded in 2014. Johnna Fusco has earned two and Marie Moore won one.

The Buffs' next game is Friday at home against Southern Cal at 4 p.m. It will be broadcast on the Pac-12 Network.
