PENN STATE NITTANY LIONS

November 14, 2016
WOMEN'S COLLEGE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Penn State Nittany Lions' Charlotte Williams


Penn State’s defense of its NCAA Women’s Championship has been facing some difficult obstacles. Among the seniors the Nittany Lions lost were Hermann Trophy winner Raquel Rodriguez and Mallory Weber, who combined on the deciding score in a 1-0 win over Duke in the final, plus five players competing for the U.S. and one for Germany in the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup.

But the Nittany Lions have adjusted, rallying to finish tied for first place in the Big Ten Conference regular-season standings, compiling a 12-match unbeaten streak along the way. And Penn State began its tournament campaign strong, taking a 6-0 victory over Bucknell. Sophomore midfielder Charlotte Williams, the Philly Soccer News Women's Player of the Week for the week ending Nov. 13, scored twice against the Bison, increasing her season total to six goals. Williams, a former Junior Olympic level skier whose father, Sandy, competed in the 1988 Winter Olympics, led the Nittany Lions in assists (seven) and was named to the All-Big Ten freshman team as a reserve last season. This season, Williams has started every game, adding finishing ability to her playmaking.
