Florida State sophomore goalkeeper Kelsey Wys (Coral Springs, Fla.) has been named the Primetime Player of the Week for Division I women's soccer, as selected by CollegeSoccer360.com (for games during Sept. 27-Oct. 3). She is joined by 14 other players in comprising the CS360 week-7 Primetime Performers of the Week (full list at bottom of this release).

Wys – who has three years of eligibility remaining after the 2010 season (she took a redshirt season in '09) – had an impressive weekend while facing two key rivals in the Atlantic Coast Conference: a 1-0 overtime win over Wake Forest and a 3-1 victory over Duke (WFU was #25 in the CS360 Composite National Rankings, while Duke was #22). Wys totaled 18 saves spanning the two games, while the only goal she allowed came on an unfortunate own-goal early in the Duke game (Wys then closed that game by stopping 14 consecutive shots-on-goal, with FSU not stretching to 3-1 until the 70th minute). 

The strong season-long play of Wys (0.63 goals-against avg.; .881 save pct.) has helped Florida State overcame the preseason loss to injury of star forwards Jessica Price and Tiffany McCarty – who easily comprised the top returning offensive duo in the nation (they each had 16-plus goals in 2009 ...

Selection for the CS360 weekly awards is based on any/all of the following "primetime" criteria (i.e. not solely based on raw stats):
• In general, preference is given based on the quality of the opponent and situational factors involved in the player's accomplishments.
• Must have been playing in a game involving a top-50 team from the CS360 Composite National Rankings (or a preseason conference favorite), or performed at a high level in a game that is key to the team's postseason qualification.
• Involved in clutch performances, such as gamewinning goals, noteworthy comebacks, late scores, team leadership, 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.
