Stanford senior goalkeeper Oliver Lewis was voted the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Player of the Week after recording career-high totals in saves in consecutive games over the weekend.
Lewis totaled 32 saves, including several crucial stops, in two key road victories over No. 5 UC Santa Barbara and No. 10 Pepperdine this past weekend. With the wins, No. 3 Stanford improved to 7-0 on the season, including four victories over nationally-ranked opponents.
In Saturday's 9-7 win over UC Santa Barbara, Lewis posted a career-best 15 saves and limited the Gauchos to their second-lowest point total of the year. Lewis, who stopped a penalty shot as well, came through with a key save in the final minutes as UCSB aggressively tried to get back into it.
In Sunday's 13-7 victory at No. 10 Pepperdine, Lewis recorded 17 saves for another career-high. The save total was the most by a Cardinal since Drew Holland registered 23 saves against UC Irvine during the 2015 season.
The MPSF weekly honor of Lewis' career and the first for a Cardinal this season.
Stanford begins an 11-match homestand this Saturday when San Jose State arrives at Avery Aquatic Center for a 1 p.m. nonconference contest.
