Hughes collects CAC Player of the Week honors

FREDERICKSBURG, Va. - Salisbury University senior defender Jillian Hughes earned the first Capital Athletic Conference (CAC) Defensive Player of the Week award of the 2019 season on Tuesday.

Hughes was named the Most Valuable Player of the Connie Harnum Classic over the weekend at Susquehanna University after the seventh-ranked Sea Gulls only allowed one goal in two games in the tournament. The Sea Gulls stifled the Kean (3-0) and Wilkes (4-1) offenses with only 11 combined shots in two games, only six were on target.

It is the second time in her career that Hughes was tabbed as the CAC Defensive Player of the Week.
