Kristin Garbutt Senior Kristin Garbutt of the Muhlenberg field hockey team was named Centennial Conference defensive player of the week.

Garbutt was part of an outstanding defensive effort in the Mules’ 1-0 upset of No. 6 Johns Hopkins. The defense warded off 25 penalty corners and held the Blue Jays to nine shots – less than half their average – in handing Hopkins its first regular-season CC shutout loss since 2005. Garbutt made a defensive save in the game as well as one in the 5-3 win at Swarthmore.

Garbutt leads the CC with seven defensive saves.
