Scoring a game winning goal for Dominican University has netted former Windsor High soccer great David Mendez player of the week honors.

Mendez was named to the Pacific West Conference Top 10 Honor Roll for the past week.

A sophomore forward, Mendez struck with 13:57 remaining to give Dominican a 1-0 win over Chaminade on the Penguins’ home turf, in San Rafael. It was his second goal of the season, tied for team high honors.

Mendez has been a top player for Dominican in his two seasons with the Penguins. Starting 12 games a year ago, Mendez had five goals and one assist. He was second on the team in goals, total points, shots (27) and shots-on-goal percentage (.741).

At Windsor High, Mendez was an All-Empire selection as both a junior and senior.

Also notable, his sister, Eleanna, was an NAIA All-American soccer player at Dominican in 2008.
