Nebraska’s Sinclaire Miramontez earns Big Ten soccer defensive player of the week

A pair of shutout victories can certainly lead to defensive accolades.

That’s the case for Husker junior Sinclaire Miramontez, who picked up Big Ten defensive player of the week honors Tuesday.

Miramontez played 172 of a possible 180 minutes as NU combined to outscore Oregon and Oregon State 5-0, improving the Huskers’ record to 3-0-1.

Miramontez, who has started all 45 games for Nebraska since 2016, also scored her second career goal in Sunday’s 3-0 victory over Oregon State.
