Mukilteo soccer player Bubba Makela was named the Conference USA defensive player of the week on Monday, Sept. 30 for her work as the goalie for the women's soccer team at the University of Texas San Antonio.

Makela and the Roadrunners opened C-USA play at the end of September with a 1-0-1 record. Makela recorded nine saves in 200 minutes of scoreless play, and leads the conference with 55 stops this fall.

Makela, a freshman at UTSA, made four stops during the scoreless match against Florida Atlantic, and had five saves against Rice last week.

The weekly honor is the first for a UTSA player since 2011.
