The Top Performers of the Week feature highlights the top athletes of each sport currently in play. Check back each week to see which athletes are standing out in Cougar sports.
Erika Woodbury - Soccer - Senior; Murrieta, Calif.
Named as the Mountain West Conference player of the week, Senior Erika Woodbury is one of few starting goalkeepers in the nation to have not allowed a goal all season. She recorded nine saves last week alone in two games that both went to overtime. She broke the career saves record at BYU as a junior last season, but recorded her 200th save on Saturday at No. 18 Colorado. Her career-saves total is now 202, which is 43 more saves than the next player on the list. The last time BYU allowed zero goals in its first three games occurred in 2003 when the team did not allow a goal until its fifth game of the season.
Max Hall - Football - Sophomore; Mesa, Ariz.
In only his second career game, BYU sophomore quarterback Max Hall completed 30-of-51 (.588) attempts for 391 yards and two touchdowns against No. 13 UCLA. The game marked the first 300-yard game of his career at BYU. Over the first two games, Hall is averaging 339.5 yards passing per contest and has a total four touchdown completions.
Chelsea Goodman - Women's Volleyball - Senior; Mesa, Ariz.
Cougar outside hitter Chelsea Goodman was named to the Stanford Invitational All-Tournament team after leading the Cougars in all three matches and averaging 4.64 kills and 4.45 digs per game. She posted three double-doubles on the weekend to move into second place all-time in Mountain West Conference history with 40 double-doubles in her career. Goodman's 17 kills against No. 17 Cal Poly were a match high and her three assists against Saint Mary's were a personal best. For the season, Goodman ranks third in the league in kills and points and ninth in digs.
Stephan Shay - Men's Cross Country - Junior; East Bay, Mich.
Shay led the way for the BYU men with a four-mile time of 19:29.3, finishing in second place behind Minnesota All-American Chris Rombough at the BYU Autumn Classic. Shay, a 5-foot-9 transfer from Michigan State, was running his first race as a Cougar.
"For his first actual race at altitude he did amazingly well," BYU men's coach Ed Eyestone said. "That time would have competed with that of Josh Rohatinsky, our NCAA national champion from last year."
Angela Wagner - Women's Cross Country - Freshman; South Africa
Angela Wagner, a freshman from South Africa, finished in third place at the BYU Autumn Classic. She broke the BYU freshman school record for the course with a 5k time of 17:51.9. A BYU freshman had never broken the 18-minute mark.
Women's coach Patrick Shane was especially impressed with how Wagner tried to make a move early on in the race.
"Wagner took control of the race maybe a little bit too early, but my hat goes off to her for trying," Shane said. "Sometimes you have to try to jump out and take the lead."
