FREDERICKSBURG, Va. - Salisbury University senior defender Sarah Jackson earned the Capital Athletic Conference (CAC) Defensive Player of the Week award on Monday.
Jackson paced the Sea Gull defense to a 2-0 week with a pair of shutouts to push their shutout streak to four consecutive games. Jackson and the rest of the Salisbury defense only allowed one shot in each of the two games on the week. Salisbury totaled seven shutouts so far this season.
Jackson collected Salisbury's fourth CAC weekly award of the season after McKenzie Mitchell won the award twice back on Sept. 9 and Sept. 30 and Jillian Hughes won the first weekly honor of the season on Sept. 2.
The third-ranked Salisbury field hockey team makes the short trip north to Dover to take on the Wesley Wolverines on Tuesday at 7 p.m.
