Wiehe Announced as Conference Rookie of the Week

HOUSTON – Houston Soccer’s Samantha Wiehe has been named Rookie of the Week, The American Athletic Conference announced on Monday.
 
The freshman midfielder scored the game winning goal on Sunday in the 100th minute at Jackson State in double overtime to secure the sixth win of the season for the Cougars (6-1-1). Her successful shot to the low right corner of the net was also the first goal of her collegiate career.
 
“Sam’s first collegiate goal is a long time coming and well deserved,” stated Head Coach Diego Bocanegra. “She scores regularly in training and has come close on several occasions in our games. Hopefully it’s the first of many.”
 
In addition to her first collegiate goal, she also posted a new personal record of shots on goal against Jackson State. She recorded two, as well as coming slightly short of her highest record of playing time for the season of 68 minutes.
