Junior goalkeeper Andrew Kartunen (San Juan Capistrano, CA/San Clemente HS) of the Stanford Men's Soccer Team was selected as the Stanford/MET-Rx Student-Athlete of the Week for the week of Sept. 20-Sept. 26.
Kartunen was perfect in the net for the Stanford men's soccer team this weekend, helping the Cardinal to two shutout victories against Army (2-0) and UAB (1-0). Kartunen, who played all 90 minutes both games, held the Black Knights and Blazers scoreless, recording his second and third shutout of the season. He has nine career shutouts for the Cardinal. Kartunen is 2-1-1 on the season with a 0.24 GAA, having given up only one goal this season.
This is Kartunen's first Stanford/MET-Rx Student-Athlete of the Week honor. Kartunen and the rest of the Cardinal Men's Soccer Team meet San Diego State at Maloney Field on Friday, September 30 (4:00 pm, PT).
