McManus Gains His Second MIAA Award of the Season

Trevor McManus was named the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association Defensive Player of the Week for the second time this season on Monday.

McManus, Albion College's first-year goalkeeper from Canton, Mich., stopped 63 percent of the shots he faced last week as the Britons scored one-goal victories over John Carroll University and Elmhurst College. He collected 14 saves against John Carroll last Wednesday, and his save percentage in that contest (.700) was the second-best in a game this season.

Through seven contests this season, McManus boasts a .582 save percentage, collecting 103 saves in 177 shots.

McManus previously gained the MIAA Defensive Player of the Week award after making 17 saves in the Britons Feb. 25 overtime win over Kenyon College.

Albion boasts a 5-2 record as it gears up for two more non-league contests on the road – Saturday at Augustana (Ill.) College and April 1 at Aurora (Ill.) University – before beginning defense of its MIAA championship April 8 with a home game against Kalamazoo College.
