Former Lincoln High and All Pioneer Valley League soccer player Lauren Edwards signed on to play for Grinnell College, Grinnell, Iowa before graduation and continues to earn accolades.

In October, Edwards was named the Midwest Conference Defensive Performer of the Week.

An All-MWC performer last season, Edwards played a key role in the Pioneers picking up two wins and allowing just one goal during the week she was honored. Grinnell stepped out of league play and defeated Nebraska Wesleyan University 2-1, and then shut down Ripon College 1-0 in a contest where Edwards assisted the lone goal in the second minute of play.

At that time, the Pioneers had won three games in a row, with four shutouts this season.
