muJunior forward Stephanie Byrne has been named the Stanford/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week for Sept. 27-Oct. 3.

The honor is the first of Byrne's career and first for a field hockey player since Nora Soza earned recognition back on Nov. 2, 2008.

She then tallied the game-winning goal in overtime during a 2-1 win over UC Davis on Oct. 2. It was Byrne's second game-winning overtime goal of the year, as she also tapped home the deciding score in a 2-1 victory over Iowa back on Sept. 11. Byrne now has three game-winning overtime goals in her career.

Stanford hosts Harvard at the Varsity Turf on Friday, Oct. 8, at 5 p.m. in its next contest.

Also Nominated: Cameron Lamming (men's soccer), Cassidy Lichtman (women's volleyball), Sally Mace (sailing), Rachel Quon (women's soccer), Jacob Smith (men's water polo), Andie Taylor (women's swimming and diving), Stepfan Taylor (football).
