What a fortnight it has been for Jamie Keller. The senior goalkeeper won her second straight MAC Defensive Player of the Week honors after receiving her MAC championship rings on Saturday afternoon.

Keller set a career-high of 14 saves on 20 shots in Saturday’s matchup with Kent State, including four of the Golden Flashes’ free position attempts. She and the Colonials remain undefeated in conference play after seven games.

This is Keller’s third time receiving the honor this season, also winning it on March 15.

The Colonials’ next matchup will be against the Akron Zips at Joe Walton Stadium Saturday at noon.
