KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Fort Hays State junior forward Santiago Agudelo has been named MIAA Men's soccer athlete of the week, announced Tuesday by the league office. This is the fourth time Agudelo has achieved the honor this season.
Agudelo recorded his fourth hat trick of the season in Fort Hays State's only game this past week. He scored goals in the 11th, 27th, and 29th minutes to push FHSU out to a 3-0 lead at the University of Mary, ultimately going on to win 7-0. He scored on all three of his shot attempts in the match. In Fort Hays State's current nine-match win streak, Agudelo scored 19 of his nation-leading 22 goals for the season. He only played 32 minutes at Mary before resting for the remainder of the match. He continues to lead the nation in goals per game (1.57), shots on goal per game (3.29), and points per game (3.5), and is tied for the lead in game-winning goals (7).
The Tigers resume conference play this weekend when they travel to Fayette, Iowa to take on Upper Iowa on Friday afternoon. Kickoff is slated for 3 p.m. against the Peacocks.
