Bush Named Big 12 Player of the Week

Sept. 6, 2005


University of Kansas freshman soccer player Jessica Bush was named the Big 12 Player of the Week as announced by the league office on Tuesday. The Blue Springs, Mo., native scored both game-winning goals to help lead the Jayhawks to victories over Missouri State and Arkansas last week.

The forwards first half goal Wednesday against Missouri State was all KU needed in a 2-0 win against the Bears. Bush then scored the game’s only goal in KU’s 1-0 victory against the Lady Razorbacks on Friday. Five of Bush’s seven shots in the two matches were on goal.

The Jayhawks will travel to San Diego, Calif., this weekend for their first road test of the season. Because Tulane University is unable to make the trip to the adidas/Torero’s Invitational, KU’s Sunday game against the University of San Diego has been moved to Friday at 9:30 p.m. central time. KU will then play Pepperdine at 2 p.m. central on Sunday, Sept. 11.
