Goalkeeper, Tom Fitzer (Junior, Chisago Lakes, Minn.) was named the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athlete Conference's men's soccer defensive athlete of the week for October 26th through November 1st.

Fitzer started in both games for the Yellowjackets during the week and produced shutouts in both efforts. He tallied 14 saves against regional rival, St. Scholastica on October 28th including a blocked penalty kick in the second half. Fitzer's effort helped the Jackets claim a 0-0 draw in the match. Fitzer then went on to shut out Lawrence University in their Halloween matchup. He picked up 3 saves in the Yellowjackets' 1-0 victory.

The junior goalkeeper dominated the Jackets' late stretch picking up 3 saves in as many matches. After splitting time for much of the season with junior goalkeeper, Jeremy McKay, Fitzer replaced his counterpart in a game at UM-Morris on October 20th. With just under 22 minutes remaining in the match, Fitzer didn't allow a goal. In fact, he wouldn't let a ball cross his goal line for the remainder of the season as he went on to finish out the Yellowjackets' season with 332 minutes of scoreless soccer and a 1-0-2 record in his final 3 games.

Fitzer is the fourth Yellowjacket to receive the award this season. He is joined by UW-Platteville's Kyle Hoerter who was named WIAC's offensive athlete of the week.
