LEBANON, Tenn-- Cumberland defender Grace Morris earned Mid-South Conference Defensive Player of the Week, as announced by the league office on Monday.
The freshman Llandysul, Wales, native, was a big part of Cumberland's two shutout victories over Pikeville 10-0 and Shawnee State 2-0 last week. The backline held both teams to a combined 11 shots in the two outings. She also scored the game-winning goal over the Bears on a header following a corner kick, her fifth goal of the season.
This is Morris's first career MSC Defensive Player of the Week award.
Cumberland (9-1-1, 5-0-1 MSC) takes on Thomas More at home on Wednesday, Oct. 13, at 1 p.m.
