So what can HU sophomore Jordan Sammons do for an encore to top last week?

Early in the week, she became the first Hamline women's soccer player to earn a NSCAA post-season team when she was named to the North Region's third team.

On the court, Sammons (pictured scoring at right)  excelled, too, recording back-to-back doubles as Hamline won their first two games of the season over Augsburg and Bethel. The MIAC took notice, though and named her the Women's Basketball Athlete Of The Week.

The Apple Valley, Minn. native scored 41 points in three games to take over the MIAC lead at 14.3 ppg. She also recorded 30 rebounds to move into fourth in the league in that department as well.

The week started with eight points and four rebounds in a loss at St. Mary's. Two nights later, Jordan had 10 points and a dozen rebounds in a 65-57 win over Augsburg at Hutton Arena. She capped matters on Saturday with 23 points ( a season high) and 14 rebounds ( a career high) in a 59-50 win at Bethel.

The Pipers now 2-5 overall (2-3 MIAC) have one game left before the holiday break -- this Friday, November 14 at Northwestern (MN). Game time is 5:00 p.m.
