St. Joseph’s University’s Victoria Kammerinke is PhilaFH’s Defender of the Week.
The sophomore goalkeeper, who hails from Germany and is a two-year starter for the Hawks, was a wall in a hard fought 1-1 week against two Atlantic 10 opponents.
Kammerinke earned a shutout – her fourth of the season — in the Hawks 4-0 victory at Virginia Commonwealth University, shattering her career-high in saves with 15. In the team’s 1-0 loss at Richmond, she recorded 4 saves and conceded only one on a penalty stroke. Kammerinke recorded 19 saves on the week and zero goals against the run of play. She and her #21-ranked St. Joseph’s squad stand with a 9-3 overall record and a 3-1 record in the A10.
“Victoria has been the backbone of our Hawk defensive unit,” St. Joseph’s Head Coach Lynn Farquhar raves. “She takes care of the details in the circle and has great pride in our structure all the way up the field. An exceptional student-athlete and teammate, Victoria has very high standards and there’s no question she will meet them.”
Kammerinke has played every minute between the pipes for the Hawks this season. She earned A10 Co-Player of the Week and NFHCA Defender of the Week honors for her performance last week. Kammerinke ranks #1 among all Phila-Area keepers with a .825 save percentage. The Hawks have allowed only 1.15 goals per game behind Kammerinke; her goals against average ranks her second in the A10 to go along with her league-leading save percentage. #PhilaFH
