POTSDAM -- SUNY Potsdam junior Caitlin Titus has received the State University of New York Athletic Conference Player of the week in women's soccer for the week ending Sept. 12, the conference announced Monday.
Titus, a transfer who is in her first season with the team, helped the Bears to a 2-0 record last week. The goalkeeper from Jamesville, N.Y., tallied her second solo shutout of the season in the team's 1-0 victory over Sage on Saturday, making two saves. Her other shutout came in the Bears' season-opening 7-0 triumph against Hilbert.
Titus also shared a shutout with Kim Callahan in Tuesday's 3-0 win against Wells. In 225 minutes of action this season, Titus has yet to allow a goal and has helped Potsdam to a 4-1 start.
The award is the first of its kind for any student-athlete at Potsdam in the 2010-11 academic year.
The Bears play four of their next five matches on the road, including the team's conference opener on Sept. 24 at Geneseo.
Each week, SUNYAC sports information directors nominate student-athletes from their respective institutions for each sport and each player of the week is selected by the league's administration.
