SCIAC Athletes of the Week

WHITTIER, Calif. – The Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) released their Men's Soccer Athletes of the Week Monday and Whittier College saw Banks Telkamp (Seattle, WA) earn Offensive Athlete of the Week recognition in the sixth week of voting.

Telkamp helped lift Whittier to a 3-2 overtime win over Chapman University in SCIAC play. After the Poets tied the game up with three minutes left in regulation, Telkamp came out in the first OT period and sent Whittier to the victory as he scored the golden goal in the 99th minute. He received the ball 40 yards out before touching it past two defenders and finishing. He took four shots in the game (three on goal) for a shots-on-goal percentage of 75%.    

Whittier gets back into action this Wednesday, October 9 when they travel to take on Pomona-Pitzer beginning at 4:00pm.
