CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - University of Virginia women's soccer players Karem Esteva (Westport, Conn.) and Jennifer Rawlings (Fayetteville, Ga.) have been named to the Soccer America National Team of the Week, for the week ending Sept. 14. Both Esteva and Rawlings were instrumental in leading the fifth-ranked Cavaliers to three wins last week, including a victory over then third-ranked Portland and the championship of the adidas / Lady Footlocker Classic.

Esteva, a junior defender, was named the Defensive MVP of the adidas / Lady Footlocker Classic. She led the Cavalier defense to the shutout in the 1-0 win over Portland. Esteva, who is the only UVa player to be on the field for every minute of every game so far this season, has led the Cavaliers to a team goals against average of 1.05 on the year.

Rawlings, a senior midfielder, scored Virginia's only goal in the 1-0 win over Portland, when she knocked in a cross from sophomore forward Angela Hucles (Virginia Beach, Va.). The goal was Rawlings' first of the season and the 11th of her career, while also being the fourth game winner of her career.

Virginia currently has an overall record of 4-0-1 on the season. The Cavaliers will be back in action this weekend, when the Coca-Cola Classic comes to Kloeckner Stadium. Virginia will play host to Kansas, Princeton and Virginia Commonwealth, with games set for 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. on both Friday and Saturday nights.
