BALDWIN CITY, Kan. – Senior defender Nate Byarlay earned this week’s Heart of America Athletic Conference Men’s Soccer Defensive Player of the Week award, his first of the season.

Byarlay did not score any goals this week, but his defensive work helped Baker to a 1-0-1 record.

A senior from Olathe, Kan., he helped the Wildcats claim a 1-1 draw with 4th-ranked Columbia College as well as a 6-0 triumph over Culver-Stockton.

Baker is now 7-5-1 on the season and 4-2 in the HAAC and currently stands at fourth-place alone in the conference standings. 

The Wildcats will host No. 11 ranked and first-place Missouri Valley this Tuesday, Oct. 30 at 7:30 p.m. in a pivotal HAAC match up. With a win, the Wildcats can move up to No. 3 in the standings and a third-seed in the HAAC Playoffs, with a loss, the Wildcats could potentially fall to No. 5 and would have to hit the road throughout the Playoffs. 

The NAIA Offensive and Defensive Player of the Week awards will be handed out each week with the winner of each award representing the conference for their respective honors through the rest of the regular season.
