EUGENE, Ore.- University of Oregon sophomore goalkeeper Caroline Federighi became the fourth straight Duck to be tabbed as the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Player of the Week, as announced by the MPSF on Monday afternoon.

She joins sophomore Shannon Propst (Apr. 2) and seniors Jana Drummond (Apr. 9) and Kristina Barrett (Apr. 16) as the Oregon players that have earned the weekly honor this season.

The four POTWs is the most that UO has had a single season, breaking the previous mark of three (2008, 2009, 2012).

No other team in the league has had more than two receive the honor. Out of the 12 weeks that the award has been given out, Cal and Stanford have had two apiece, and Denver, Fresno State, UC Davis and San Diego State have had one each.

Federighi played the whole game in net, as the Ducks clinched their first ever regular season title in the 13-8 win over Denver on Saturday. She recorded 12 saves against 22 shots while only allowing eight goals, for a season-high .600 save percentage. Federighi has 114 saves, an 8.94 GAA, and a .511 save percentage to accompany her 12-3 record this year. She enters the MPSF Semifinals with 201 saves for her career, which is third all-time at Oregon.

Winners of seven straight, No. 1 seed Oregon faces No. 4 seed Cal in Thursday's MPSF Semifinal at 4:30 p.m. at Cagan Stadium in Stanford, Calif.
