FHSU’s Babyak Named MIAA Women’s Soccer Defensive Athlete of the Week


Jamie Babyak of the Fort Hays State University women’s soccer team was named the MIAA Defensive Athlete of the Week, as announced by the conference office Tuesday (Oct. 29).

Babyak, a junior defender from Austin, Texas, scored her first goal and tallied her first assist of the 2013 season in the Tiger’s 3-1 win over MIAA opponent Lindenwood last Friday evening (Oct. 25).  She played the entire 90 minutes of the match.

Babyak’s free kick from 50 yards out found the head of teammate Margaret Meier for a header goal at 66:48, and just over three minutes later, scored for herself on a 45-yard free kick just over an outstretched goalie’s arms.

The Tigers travel to Kearney, Neb., on Friday, Nov. 1 for their season finale against Nebraska-Kearney.  The match is scheduled for 7 p.m.
