Senior Rachel Buehler (Del Mar, Calif./Torrey Pines) of the Stanford women's soccer team was selected as the Stanford/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week for the week of Oct. 23-Oct. 29.
On Friday night, Buehler powered the Stanford back line that posted a 2-0 shutout of Oregon State. On Sunday, Buehler helped the Cardinal blank formerly unbeaten Oregon, and scored the game-winner in the 64th minute to lift the Cardinal to victory. Buehler has been the anchor of the Stanford defense this season, which has posted 13 shutouts and held 15 opponents to two shots on goal or less. The goal was Buehler's first of the season.
This is Buehler's first Stanford/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week honor. Buehler and the rest of the Cardinal women's soccer squad return to action on Sunday, November 5 against California at 1 p.m.
