TUCSON, Ariz. - Arizona's Savanah Levake has been named to the Soccer Buzz Elite Team of the Week after leading the Wildcats to a pair of wins last weekend, including an upset of fourth-ranked Texas. The weekly honor is the first in her three-year career at Arizona.
Levake, a junior defender from Phoenix, Ariz., helped start off the successful weekend when she broke a 1-1 in the 53rd minute on her second career goal in Arizona's 2-1 win over Nevada on Friday. She then played a vital role defensively in UA's 2-0 whitewashing of the Longhorns two days later. Levake and the Wildcat defensive effort held UT scoreless for the first time?this season?and handed UA its first win over a top-5 team since the 2004 season.
The Arizona soccer program returns to action this weekend when it plays New Mexico on Friday and No. 8 Virginia on Sunday at the Virginia Nike Soccer Classic in Charlottesville, Va.
