Alyssa Anderson


Scoring in bunches has earned former Montgomery high great Alyssa Anderson player of the week honors in Big Sky Conference soccer.

The Sacramento State sophomore was named offensive player of the week after helping lead the Hornets to a win and a tie to open Big Sky Conference play.

The forward is tied for the Big Sky lead in goals with six and second in the conference with 13 total points. Anderson has booted half of Sacramento State’s goals on the season.

With three game winning goals, Anderson leads the Big Sky in that clutch category.

Anderson, an All-Empire player at Montgomery, earned honorable mention all-conference honors her first season at Sacramento State.

The Hornets are tied for third in the Big Sky after coaches picked Sacramento State to finish seventh in the 10-team conference. Sacramento State won the conference in 2007 and 2010 and advanced to the NCAA tournament.
