Jovany Macias was honored as the conferences Offensive Player of the Week, as the sophomore scored the game winning goal over Metro State in overtime. Macias also found the back of the net against 11th ranked Colorado Mines, scoring TAMIU's only goal of the match.
While Macias was scoring, Aissa Pedraza was making sure no one got on the scoreboard against the women. Pedraza stopped all six shots form St. Mary's as she earned her first career shutout and only the 4th in the programs history.
