Donovan named athlete of the month...
South Dakota State senior goalkeeper Kat Donovan was named The Summit League Female Athlete of the Month for October...
Donovan started every game for the Jacks in the month of October and posted a 7-0-1 record in goal, all of which was in conference play. Donovan made 28 saves in those eight games. She allowed only one goal the entire month.
In that time, the senior posted seven shutouts, part of her record 11 this season. In addition, the consecutive shutout minutes streak spanned the entire month (712:31), ending in the last game of the month.
Donovan is the first South Dakota State athlete to earn the honor this academic year.
The Jacks season ended this past week in The Summit League Tournament semifinals.
