CHICKASHA – After a helping lead the back line all season, highlighted with a shutout in the Sooner Athletic Conference Quarterfinals, Gabby Barros was named the SAC’s final Defensive Player of the Week.

The defender has been instrumental all season in helping the Drovers achieve a 13-5 overall record and the program’s first SAC Semifinal appearance after the quarterfinal win on Saturday.

In that game, Barros and the Drovers held Mid-America Christian to just two shots on goal in the 105 minutes of action. The Drovers ended up winning the game in double overtime 1-0.

Barros is the second USAO woman to be named SAC Player of the Week this season and the first defender to do so.

She is an elementary education senior from Oklahoma City. She is the daughter of Philip and Myra Martinez.
