Tameem Yehyawi and Sara Murray Named MIAA Athletes of the Week
Football Defensive Athlete of the Week: Tameem Yehyawi (Keokuk, Iowa), Linebacker
Yehyawi, a 6-foot-1, 229-pound senior from Keokuk, Iowa, helped the Bulldogs limit then-No. 14 Central Missouri State well under their 410.3 yards per game total offense average and nation's best 46.7 points per game scoring average in a 28-22 loss Saturday (Oct. 25).
He recorded a career-high of 16 tackles -- nine solos and seven assists -- in recording his fourth straight game of double-figure tackles, and fifth overall for the 2003 season. The Bulldog defense held the Mules to 245 yards of offense.
Yehyawi is a graduate of Keokuk High School.
Soccer Athlete of the Week: Sara Murray (Eden Prairie, Minn.), Forward
Murray, a 5-foot-9 junior from Eden Prairie, Minn., tied the MIAA's single-season points record as she scored seven points in two victories for the No. 10-ranked Bulldogs last week.
She scored the first goal in a 3-0 shutout of Southwest Baptist on Saturday (Oct. 25), and added an assist. She had three shots in the match.
The points record, set last season by Missouri Southern's Ashley Munnelly, was equalled in Truman's 2-0 win over Central Missouri State the next day. Murray had both goals in spite of a Jennies defense which packed nine players on the defensive end and raised her single-season total to 43 (16 goals, 11 assists).
The wins extended the Bulldogs' unbeaten string to 15 games (14-0-1), a new conference record.
Murray is a graduate of Eden Prairie High School.
