FORT WORTH, Texas - TCU goalkeeper Kelsey Walters was selected to the Soccer Buzz Elite Team of the Week on Wednesday.

With the selection, Walters, who earlier this week was named Mountain West Conference Defensive Player of the Week, became the first TCU player in the program's history to be named to Soccer Buzz's Elite Team of the Week.

Walters, a freshman from Oklahoma City, had a dominating night in goal against Utah last weekend. Walters recorded 10 saves in the match, while also pitching a shutout. With the shutout, Walters kept the Utes off the scoreboard despite facing 24 shots on the night.

Walters made a key stop in the match late in the second half when she held Adele Letro, who has netted 16 goals on the year and currently ranks No. 3 in the nation in goals per game, off the scoreboard on a penalty kick attempt.

Her shutout marked only the third time all season that Utah had been held without a point for a match.

TCU will close its regular season on Nov. 2 at San Diego State. Start time for the match is set for 3 p.m. (PT).
