Stanford senior Camille Levin (Newport Coast, Calif.) – whose strong two-way contributions from her right back position played a lead role in the Cardinal's run to the title – headlines the final edition of the CS360 Primetime Performers of the Week for Division I women's soccer, as selected by CollegeSoccer360.com (five honorees, listed below). Levin, pictured at right, is the final CS360 Primetime Player of the Week and is joined by four others on the Primetime Performer Weekly Honor Roll for the 2011 College Cup championship weekend, held at Kennesaw State (Ga.) Soccer Stadium (player info. and photos below; headshots in right-sidebar).  

... Selection for the Division I women's 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 is key to the team's postseason achievements.

• In general, preference is given based on the quality of the opponent, contribution to team success and 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, 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.
