Pena and Warren Earn SWAC Weekly Honors
Grambling State University senior forward Kailey Pena and sophomore goalkeeper Quinlan Warren earned a pair of Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) women’s soccer honors, the conference announced on Wednesday.
Pena, the SWAC Offensive Player of the Week, finished with four points in a pair of Grambling State shutout victories over Jackson State and Southern. Her assist set up the game-winning goal in the Lady Tigers’ 1-0 overtime win over JSU on Friday and her goal on Sunday against Southern began GSU’s scoring onslaught in the 6-0 victory.
Warren, who was selected the SWAC Goalkeeper of the Week, played 182 minutes in goal for the Lady Tigers in two shutout victories. She registered six saves in the overtime win over JSU and wasn’t tested much in the rout over Southern.
Grambling State (2-6-1 overall, 2-0 SWAC) return to action on Friday with a 7 p.m. match at Texas Southern.
