MAC Defensive Field Hockey Player of the Week 
Jahna Jordan, Kent State, Goalkeeper
Sophomore, Fallbrook, California (Fallbrook Union)
Jordan kept the Chippewas scoreless for over 99 minutes of play, leading Kent State to a 1-0  double overtime victory. Her eight saves and impressive presence in the net provided the Kent State offense the time needed to overcome Central Michigan. The win clinched a share of the MAC regular season title for the Golden Flashes, their fourth crown in the last five years. The shutout was Jordan's second of the year and was the longest shutout by any MAC goalie since the 2006 season

 
MAC Co-offensive Field Hockey Player of the Week
Ali Froede, Miami, Forward
Junior, Burke, Va. (Lake Braddock)
Froede scored the game-tying goal against Ohio on Saturday on a penalty corner. She also helped set up the game winning goal which was also on a penalty corner. Froede led the Miami offensive attack in a game that led to the RedHawks winning the MAC regular season title. As a result of her performance, she was named to Synapse Sports Honor Roll Team, the only player from the MAC to be honored this week.
 
MAC Co-offensive Field Hockey Player of the Week
Holly Scherer, Missouri State, Forward
Freshman, Belmont, Ontario, Canada ( East Elgin Secondary)
Scherer closed Missouri State's 2012 season with one of the best performances of any Mid-American Conference player this year. The freshman set a single-game career high in goals and points when she knocked in four goals to lead the Bears past the Saint Louis Billikens on Oct. 24. Scherer's four goals and eight points led all MAC players last week, and tied her for the second-most goals and points in a single game among all MAC players this season. In addition, Scherer's performance vaulted her into the MAC's top-10 in points, points per game and game-winning goals.

Playing in the last game of her career, Stoute racked up four shots, two shots on goal and a defensive save against the Saint Louis Billikens on Oct. 24. Stoute's defensive save was her 11th of the season, which led the conference by a wide margin and made her the national leader in that category.
