WALLA WALLA — Whitman men’s soccer player Alex Barsher has been named the Northwest Conference Soccer Student-Athlete of the Week.
Barsher, a midfielder, scored four goals, two in each of Whitman’s wins over Pacific and George Fox at the Whitman Athletic Fields — the team’s first home games of the season.
The four goals give Barsher seven for the season, tying him for the league lead with Ian Farley of Pacific and Derek Johnson of Pacific Lutheran.
The Missionaries’ three-game winning streak has put them in a tie for second place in the NWC with a record of 3-0-1, knotted with Pacific Lutheran. They are just one point back of first place Puget Sound (4-0).
