COLUMBIA — Missouri soccer redshirt junior McKenzie Sauerwein was named Southeastern Conference Defensive Player of the Week on Monday.

Sauerwein helped the Tigers come away with a double overtime road win Friday against Kentucky (2-1) and a double overtime tie against Tennessee (1-1) on Sunday. 

During the match against Tennessee, Sauerwein broke the program's career saves record held by Jackie Adamec. Sauerwein ended the game with 296 total saves surpassing Adamec's 295, set in 1998.

The Missouri soccer team is set to end the regular season at 7 p.m. Thursday with an away match against Arkansas.
