    WALNUT CREEK, Calif. -- UCLA forward Darian Jenkins and ARIZONA goalkeeper Gabby Kaufman were named Pac-12 Women’s Soccer Players of the Week for the week of August 26-September 1, Commissioner Larry Scott announced today.


    Jenkins, a freshman from Riverton, Utah, was named Offensive Player of the Week after scoring two goals on the weekend to help the No. 2/4-ranked Bruins to the Notre Dame Adidas Tournament title after picking up wins over No. 20/25 Marquette and tournament host No. 7/4 Notre Dame. Jenkins was named the Offensive Most Valuable Player of the tournament after scoring the tying goal against the Golden Eagles and the game-winner over the Fighting Irish. The first-year player has scored a goal in each of the first four games of the season and leads the team with eight points.


    Kaufman, a junior from Calabasas, Calif., earned Defensive Player of the Week Honors after pacing the Wildcats defense to two shutouts on the weekend and helping them remain undefeated at 3-0-1 on the year. Kaufman recorded 10 saves over two games, including three in a 6-0 victory over UC Irvine and seven against No. 24 Ohio State in a game that went to double-overtime and ended in a 0-0 draw.


    This is the first first career weekly honor for both Jenkins and Kaufman and the 36th and 11th overall for UCLA and Arizona, respectively. The undefeated Bruins continue a tough road trip to North Carolina this weekend, taking on the defending national champions and No. 1-ranked Tar Heels on Friday at 5 p.m. ET, followed by a Sunday matchup with No. 12 Duke at 12:30 p.m. ET. The Wildcats are not playing at home but do not have to travel far to face Kansas on Friday at 4:30 p.m. MT and Illinois on Sunday at 11 a.m. MT as apart of the Sun Devil Desert Classic in Tempe, Ariz.


    Also Nominated: Jazmin Ponce, ARIZ; Cali Farquharson, ASU; Samantha Witteman, CAL; Brie Hooks, COLO; Annie Brunner, COLO; Bri Pugh, ORE Abby Steele, ORE; Haley Rosen, STAN; Abby Dahlkemper, UCLA; Kayla Mills, USC; Lindsey Luke, UTAH; Micaela Castain, WSU.
