DENTON, Texas -- Sophomore defender Kelsey Hodges was named the Sun Belt Conference player of the week for November 1 after her performance in a victory against Denver Oct. 26.
Hodges scored the game's only goal, off a free kick from beyond midfield, to give North Texas the Sun Belt Regular Season Championship.
She played in all 90 minutes for the Mean Green, blocking a 63rd minute free kick with her face and still remained in the game as north Texas held Denver scoreless for the second time this year.
She leads all Sun Belt defenders with seven goals this season, and has goals in back-to-back games.
She was also named to the CollegeSoccer360 Primetime Performers of the Week, which is a national team of the week.
Hodges becomes the third North Texas representative for the Sun Belt Conference player of the week in 2011.
The Mean Green begin the Sun Belt Tournament Nov. 2 in Murfreesboro, TN as the top seed overall looking to defeat Troy for the second time this year.
