Olsen leads Women of Troy back into elite

WOMEN'S NEWS ... USC has overcome injuries and suspensions to its backline to return to the Soccer America Women's Top 25 at No. 19. The Women of Troy's 2-0 win at ranked Santa Clara on Sunday was their sixth in a row.

Goalkeeper Kristin Olsen was named the Most Outstanding Defensive Player at the Women's College Cup two years ago when USC won its first women's title, and she could be the top keeper in the country this year. Olsen matched her career high with eight saves against Santa Clara. USC hasn't lost since Sept. 4 when Olsen was red carded in a 1-0 loss at Ohio State.

Senior All-American Meagan Holmes has been sidelined with a knee injury since the first game of the season. Junior Ashli Sandoval moved from the midfield to fill in for Holmes but suffered a season-ending ACL injury three weeks ago. Chelsea Buehning missed last week's Pacific game after being red carded against Oklahoma a week earlier. Junior Karter Haug will miss the first game of her career Friday when she is suspended for USC's match with San Diego, leaving sophomore Claire Schloemer as the only defender to play in every game this season.

There is good news for USC, though. Freshmen Kelly Morgan and Stephanie Morgan have earned their first starts in the back, and Holmes could return to action soon.
