Freshmen Boysen and Davie wins USC Credit Union POW Honors
For Haley Boysen, freshman midfielder for the womenâ€™s soccer team, and Jeremy Davies, freshman 2-Â meter player for the back-to-back NCAA champion menâ€™s water polo team, this past weekend signifiedÂ quite the opposite. Two of the Trojan familyâ€™s newest members put on a good old fashioned coming outÂ party.
Boysen led USC womenâ€™s soccer to two victories in the Trojan Invitational over No.23 Auburn and NAU.Â On Friday night, she notched the matchâ€™s only goal in overtime to lead the team to a thrilling victoryÂ against the Tigers. And just two days later, she effortlessly took on the role of playmaker as she set upÂ the Trojans first and third goals in a victory against the Lumberjacks.
But the spotlight Boysen thrived in the past few days was by no means a single act. Fellow-freshmanÂ Davie helped the Trojans win triumphantly against No.10 Long Beach State (16-4) and No.8 LMUÂ (10-5). In both matchups, Davie led the team in goals, looking at ease en route to two hat tricks.
For Boysenâ€™s and Davieâ€™s efforts, the USC Credit Union named both as the Student-Athletes of the WeekÂ for the week of Sept. 6-12.
