UMSL junior Laura Hurlbut

For the second time this season, junior midfielder Laura Hurlbut of the University of Missouri–St. Louis women’s soccer team has been named the Great Lakes Valley Conference Offensive Player of the Week.

Hurlbut, who is majoring in education with a special education emphasis, netted two game-winners in the Tritons’ 2-0 conference weekend at Illinois Springfield and Southern Indiana this past week. At USI on Friday, Hurlbut scored the game-winner on one of her three shots to help jumpstart UMSL to a 3-0 victory. On Sunday, the Leawood, Kansas, native found the back of the net first in the Tritons’ 2-0 win at UIS.

Hurlbut leads the team and currently ranks tied for third in the conference with four goals on the year. She also earned the GLVC honor on Sept. 8.

UMSL (5-1, 3-1 GLVC) returns home this weekend to host Rockhurst on Friday and William Jewell on Sunday.
