ST. LOUIS – The American Midwest Conference has announced its women's soccer Players of the Week for the week ending October 23, 2016, with representatives from Central Baptist College and William Woods University taking this week's honors. The Mustangs' Kady Johnson earned Offensive Player of the Week honors, while Kailyn Graham of William Woods was named the Defensive Player of the Week.
Johnson, a 5-3 freshman from Greenbrier, Ark., doubled her goal count on the season in a 5-4 win over Stephens College. Johnson tallied four goals in the match, and she currently leads the Mustangs in goals (8), shots on goal (17), and shots (22).
