On the eve of another promising season for the Cougar women’s soccer team senior forward Morgan Weaver once again has the spotlight. Weaver was named no.41 on the top 100 players to watch this year for women’s soccer by TopDrawerSoccer. In addition she was previously named to the watch list for the award that goes to the top player in the country. Weaver is already off to a hot start scoring two goals and two assists after a 5-0 victory in an exhibition against SDSU. The website also has the WSU program sitting at No.15 in their preseason top 25.
The 5-foot-10 attacker from University Place was named First Team All Pac 12 and First Team All West Region last year as a junior. She racked up 13 goals and was named to the postseason TopDrawerSoccer top 100. Weaver scored the game winning goal in the Cougar’s historic upset over No. 1 UCLA. She also earned three Pac 12 Offensive Player of the Week awards most of anyone in the conference. Check out this incredible hat trick against the hated Huskies. Truly a thing of beauty.
