OMAHA, NEBRASKA: Junior midfielder Aubrey Raymond received the Student-Athlete of the Week Award from the NCCAA for Division 1 Women's soccer for the week of November 6. Raymond was one of three student-athletes nominated for the role; she beat out Rachel Blumfeldt of Campbellsville University and Megan Norton of Bluefield College for the Offensive Player of the Week Award.
Raymond scored a career-high 3 goals on Friday, November 3, in the Royals' shutout of Nebraska Christian College; she had 16 shots, 10 of which were on-goal. Raymond set the program record for shots in a game with 16 (previous record was 10 shots, held by Jenn Will) and broke her own school record for shots-on-goal in a game with 10 (previous record was 6). Raymond also set the school record for most goals scored in a game by an individual with her hat trick (previous record was 2 goals, held by multiple players). Raymond has been the Royals' leading scorer throughout the 2017 season, scoring 8 of the Royals' 29 total goals; 33 of her 57 shots in 18 games were on-goal this season alone.
