The Big Ten honored Iowa soccer junior goalkeeper Hannah Clark as Co-Defensive Player of the Week, the conference office announced Monday.

The award came after she made 5 saves in a 1-0 win against Minnesota on Sept. 20 in Minneapolis. Clark now has four shutouts in four starts this season and has not been scored on in any of the last 363:13 minutes.

Her prowess in goal has led Iowa to a 3-0 conference start, best in school history.

This is not the Fort Collins, Colorado, native’s first Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week award — she has won the honor two previous times — Sept. 3, 2013, and Oct. 1, 2012.

Clark shares the award with Wisconsin senior goalkeeper Genevieve Richard.

Iowa next takes the pitch at home against Maryland on Thursday at 2:30 p.m.; the game will be live on Big Ten Network.
