ATHLETE OF THE WEEK: Volleyball player Chelsi Neves has been named the first Utah State Athlete of the Week for the 2001-02 academic year by a local media panel.
Neves, a senior setter from Otto, Wyo., earned the honor in a split vote over cross country runner Steve Prescott. Neves helped lead USU to a 2-1 mark on the week as the Aggies defeated Murray State and Arkansas before losing to 14th-ranked Colorado State at the University Park Holiday Inn Classic in Fort Collins, Colo.
SOCCER: SUU's women's soccer team mustered only 11 shots on goal as the Thunderbirds fell in their inaugural home opener to William Penn, 2-0, Monday afternoon at home.
VOLLEYBALL: BYU junior outside hitter Sunny Mahe was named the Mountain West Conference Volleyball Player of the Week, marking the second time overall she has earned the award.
A native of Allen, Texas (Allen HS), Mahe led BYU with 45 kills (3.75 per game) and a .330 hitting percentage (45k-11e-103a) as the Cougars posted a 2-1 record at the Washington Tournament in Seattle last weekend.
