Goalkeeper Ann Jefferis (center in black) was named the NorPac East Division Defensive Player of the Week today.

Liberty Lady Flames field hockey goalkeeper Ann Jefferis was tabbed the NorPac East Division Defensive Player of the Week this afternoon by the conference office.

Jefferis, making her first start in goal since the 2011 season, helped lead Liberty to a 4-0 season-opening victory versus Saint Joseph's last Friday afternoon at Liberty Field Hockey Field. The redshirt senior turned away four shots en route to the shutout. It was the fourth shutout for Jefferis during her Liberty career.

Jefferis and the rest of the Lady Flames will trek across the country this weekend to square off against a pair of NorPac West Division foes. On Friday, Liberty will face UC Davis in a neutral site game at Cal at 10 p.m. EST. The Lady Flames will wrap up the weekend versus Cal on Sunday at 5 p.m. EST. The contests will serve as the beginning of a six-game road stretch for Liberty.
