Nov 11, 2013
YORK, PA – York College is proud to announce that junior
women’s soccer player Melanie Glessner (Waldorf,
Md./Thomas Stone) has been named the Spartan Athlete of
the Week for the week ending November 10.
Glessner led her Spartan teammates to a Capital Athletic
Conference championship in penalty kicks at top-seeded Christopher
Newport on Saturday.
It was what Glessner did in the penalty shootout after a 1-1 in
double overtime at CNU that earned her the weekly award. After the
Spartans converted the first penalty kick attempt, Glessner stopped
four of the five Captains PK attempts with the fifth missing the
cage to earn the Spartans their second CAC title in school
Glessner was very good in regulation and overtime as she notched
six saves before her brilliant performance in the shootout.
Glessner began the week with seven saves in the Spartans’
3-1 win over Mary Washington at home in the CAC semifinals,
punching York's ticket to the CAC finals.
Glessner and the Spartans will now play Carnegie Mellon in the
opening round of the 2013 NCAA Tournament at Johns Hopkins
University in Baltimore, MD.
