Three Hope College athletes have received recognition from the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MIAA).
Flying Dutchmen Kicker Lauded By MIAA
Hope kicker Evan Finch has been chosen the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association Special Teams Player of the Week for games through October 26.
The senior from Ann Arbor (Pioneer HS) kicked field goals of 21 and 31 yards and added three extra points in Hope’s 27-17 win over Kalamazoo.
Finch now has nine field goals on the season. He is one short of matching the school record shared by Doug Cooper (1986) and Duy Dang (1987).
Finch is being honored as Player of the Week for the second time this season and in his career.
Flying Dutch Pair Honored By MIAA
Hope forward Raisa Yewah and goalkeeper Kat Dickson have been selected the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association Women’s Soccer Players of the Week in women’s soccer for games through October 26.
Yewah, a senior from East Lansing (Okemos HS), scored three goals, including two game-winning tallies, in leading the Flying Dutch to a pair of victories that moved them into first place in the MIAA race. She scored the game’s first goal in a 3-0 victory over Olivet, then scored twice in a 3-0 road win at Alma.
Yewah is being honored as Player of the Week for the first time in her career.
Dickson, a junior from Grayslake, Ill. (Grayslake Central HS), had back-to-back shutout performances in goal in leading Hope to two MIAA wins and sole possession of first place in the conference. She made three saves in a 3-0 win over Olivet and had five saves in a 3-0 blanking of Alma.
Dickson is being honored as Player of the Week for the first time in her career.
