Sept. 19, 2017
SPOKANE, Wash. – Gonzaga’s India Jencks was named the Top Drawer Soccer National Women’s Soccer Player of the Week Tuesday.
Jencks recorded a brace in both Gonzaga victories over the weekend to lead the way for the 7-1-1 Bulldogs. The sophomore found the back of the net twice in Friday’s 5-1 win over Fairleigh Dickinson and twice in the Zags’ 3-2 upset over No. 23 Memphis.
The win against Memphis marked the first time that Gonzaga has beaten a ranked team in 10 years. All three of Jencks’ shots versus FDU were on goal, while three of her four against Memphis were on frame.
The torrid pace improves the sophomore to eight goals in the last five games, and nine for the season.
