Shalette Alexander helped the Wildcats earn two shutouts.

After helping the Wiley College women's soccer team to two shutout victories, Shalette Alexander (SR/Carapichaima, Trinidad & Tobago) wins Red River Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Week.

In Thursday's 3-0 victory at Texas College, Alexander helped the Lady Wildcats hold the Lady Steers to six shots and prevented them from getting a shot on goal. Alexander was part of a defensive effort that held Jarvis Christian College to one shot in Saturday's 2-0 victory.

The two victories helped the Lady Wildcats finish fourth in the Red River Athletic Conference at 8-3-2 overall and 5-2-2 in conference play. Wiley College will host Texas A&M-Texarkana in the first round of the Red River Athletic Conference Tournament at 3 p.m. Friday.

This is the first time that Alexander has won the award. She is the second Lady Wildcat to win Defensive Player of the Week. Goalkeeper Keri Myers (JR/Carapichauna, Trinidad & Tobago) won on October 10.
