Women's Student-Athlete of the Week: Cynthia Jacobo, Soccer

Senior goalkeeper Cynthia Jacobo made five saves over the weekend to help the Matadors to a pair of shutouts and four road points in the Big West Conference. By earning a point in a 0-0 draw at UC Irvine and then taking all three points in 1-0 victory at Long Beach State, the Matadors earned the No. 2 seed in the league tournament. 

Jacobo posted four stops against the Anteaters and added one save against the 49ers. She now has a league-best nine shutouts on the season and 25 for her career. The 25 career shutouts ranks second in school history and two short of establishing a new school record.

For the season, Jacobo is 9-4-6 with a 0.51 goals-against-average, 96 saves and a .906 save percentage. She has 31 career victories, the most in school history.
