The Big Ten announced Tuesday afternoon Indiana women’s soccer sophomore Jamie Gerstenberg was one of two players selected as the Big Ten Co-Goalkeeper of the Week. Gerstenberg shares the award with senior Erin McKinney from the University of Wisconsin.
Gerstenberg followed up her breakout freshman season – where she set the program record for shutouts with nine – with two shutouts in two matches to start her second year at Indiana. She made four saves in the season opener against West Virginia University and followed that up with a career-high eight saves at Virginia Tech University.
Gerstenberg was one of three Hoosiers named to the Big Ten women’s soccer watch list, and she has posted a 0.45 goals against average in her career, including 11 shutouts in just 18 starts. The Birkenwerder, Germany, native last won an award on Sept.14, 2021, when she received Big Ten Freshman of the Week honors.
It’s the first time an Indiana goalkeeper has received the award since now-graduate student Bethany Kopel won it outright on March 2, 2021.
The next chance for Gerstenberg to record a clean sheet is Thursday, when Indiana will play its home opener against Ball State at 8 p.m.
