CLINTON — The NAIA named Ashford University soccer goalkeeper Kylie Willet its National Defensive Player of the week Tuesday for helping the Saints to a pair of wins last week.

Willet made eight combined saves in wins over No. 8-ranked Trinity Christian and Calumet College of St. Joseph. She became the first Ashford athlete to gain a national honor since the softball team's Jamie Gillespie belted two grand slams in one inning this past spring.

Willet also earned the Midwest Collegiate Conference's Defensive Player of the Week award.
