Alyssa Heintschel named MAC scholar athlete of the week
Ball State soccer goalkeeper Alyssa Heintschel, has been dominant on field as well as in the classroom.
Heintschel has been named the Mid-American Conference Scholar Athlete of the week.
This school year, Heintschel owns a 4.0 GPA while majoring in chemistry. She has been doing this while holding opponents to 0.77 goals against average, which ranks 53rd amongst all division-1 soccer opponents.
The Cardinals have shut out opponents five times this season, the most recent coming from Ball State’s 3-0 victory last Friday against Kent State.
Heintschel made a big contribution to the Oct. 10 victory against Ohio, recording two saves in the last 10 minutes as Ball State went on to win 2-1.
Currently, the team is on a seven-game winning streak, tying for the longest in the nation. The Cardinals are also undefeated in the MAC, with a 6-0 record.
The Cardinals will play Northern Illinois and Western Michigan this weekend before returning to Briner Sports Complex the next week.
