Women’s Soccer: UCSB’s Ives Named Big West Co-Player of the Week

The junior forward scored three goals and assisted on another in weekend games.

UCSB women’s soccer junior forward Genelle Ives, who scored three goals and assisted on another in two weekend games, has been named Big West co-Player of the Week, the league announced Monday. She shares the honor with Cal State Northridge midfielder Nancy Avesyan.

Ives scored her first goal of the weekend in the sixth minute of Friday night’s 1-1 tie with visiting Pacific, heading home a Jacqui Simon cross. On Sunday, she assisted on a first half goal by Kailyn Kugler and then scored two of her own in the second half of a 4-2 win at previously unbeaten Cal Poly.

“Her work-rate over the two games was really high,” said UCSB head coach Paul Stumpf of Ives’ performances. “Playing on the road on a Sunday night after playing an overtime game on Friday night is tough, but there was no drop-off in Genelle’s effort. She was relentless in pressuring, attacking and going forward.”

Ives leads the Big West Conference with eight goals and 21 points on the season. She also has five assists, tying for the league lead. In her career, Ives has now scored 21 goals, ninth on UCSB’s all-time list.

The Gauchos, who play on the road against UC Davis at 2 p.m. Friday, are 10-5-1 overall and 3-1-1 in league play. Their 10 points in league tie them for second with Cal Poly, three points behind Long Beach State.

Bill Mahoney is UCSB‘s assistant athletics director of athletics communications.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
