Junior midfielder one of 12 on week-11 Primetime Performers Honor Roll for Oct.28-Nov. 3; honorees also include CS360 National Freshman of the Week, Memphis forward Val Sanderson.

A pair of Canadian players – Washington State junior midfielder Nicole Setterlund (Boisbriand, Quebe) and Memphis freshman forward Val Henderson (Surrey, B.C.) – headline the CS360 National Primetime Performers Weekly Honor Roll (Oct. 28-Nov. 3) for Division I women's soccer, as selected by Setterlund has been tabbed the CS360 National Primetime Player of the Week and Sanderson the CS360 National Freshman of the Week. The duo are joined by 10 others (listed below) in comprising the week-11 Primetime Performers Weekly Honor Roll.

SETTERLUND continued to be a force in the midfield for the Cougar while scoring or assisting on three of team's four goals during an impressive weekend that included a 3-1 win over cs360 #23 California and a 1-0 victory over (6) Stanford. It was WSU's first win over the Cardinal since 2003 and ended Stanford's 42-game road unbeaten streak (also halted a 26-game road win streak in Pac-12 play). Setterlund scored the tying & go-ahead ('53) goals vs. Cal, then had the primary assist on  Jocelyn Jeffers' chip vs. Stanford (58') – lifting Washington State to second in the Pac-12.

SANDERSON totaled nine points (4G–1A) in a pair of games, as the 7th-seeded Tigers reached the American Athletic Conference semifinals after a 6-0 win over Houston and a 2-1, double-OT victory at 2-seed Louisville (cs360 #25). The rookie scored both goals in the win over the Cardinals (gamewinner at 106') and has set Memphis records for goals (17) and points (37) by a freshman. Memphis, two years removed from its historic 2011 season, could make a return to the NCAAs by winning the AAC tournament but also mainstays an outshot shot at an NCAA at-large bid.

Foreign players generally are a rarity on the CS360 Primetime Performers Honor Roll but they comprise nearly half of this week's 12 honorees (5, see below; also one each from England, Ontario and Wales). The 12 honorees include six seniors, two of them fifth-years, plus three juniors and three freshmen (six are forward, three midfielders, two defenders and a M/F).

Headshots of all 12 week-11 Honor Roll members are included in the right sidebar (action shots of each have been added to the bottom of this page, with brief text summaries for each honoree included with the listing below).

... Selection for the CS360 weekly awards is based on any/all of the following "primetime" criteria (i.e. not solely based on raw stats):

• Performed at a high level in a game that could be key to the team's postseason qualification, typically in a game involving a top-50 team from the CS360 Composite National Rankings (or in a game involving a conference favorite/leader from a league not represented in the CS360 top-50).
• In general, preference is given based on the quality of the opponent, contribution to team success and other situational factors involved in the player's accomplishments.
• Exhibited strong leadership and/or involved in clutch performances, such as gamewinning goals, noteworthy comebacks, late scores, momentum-shifting play, all-around performance/consistency, filling role/gameplan, team spirit, etc.
• Overcame adversity or extreme circumstances (for the team and/or individual).
• Bonus consideration is given for key performances away from team's home field and/or against a traditional rival.
• (Note that more players from conferences outside the CS360 top-50 will be honored later in the season, as league races heat up and individual results have greater bearing on postseason qualification).

Listing of the 17 honorees follows below – with short notes on each to be added; action photos of all 17 have been added at bottom of the page, with headshots in right sidebar.
