Fredericksburg, Va. – Senior goalkeeper Zack Haussler (Woodbine, Md./Glenelg) wrapped up his fifth career Capital Athletic Conference Men's Soccer Defensive Player of the Week award for the week of September 25.
Haussler was named CAC Defensive Player of the Week after recording his 16th career shutout to lead St. Mary's College of Maryland to a 1-0 week.
The 6-0 goalkeeper put up four saves as the Seahawks opened up conference action with a 1-0 shutout of Penn State Harrisburg this past Saturday. Haussler's 16th career shutout ties him with Rick Besore '08 as the school's all-time leaders in shutouts.
