“Jake Feener has had a terrific year,” said head coach Pete Fewing. “I’m very proud of the way he’s played and the way he’s been a leader for us. Getting a shutout in his last game at home was amazing and he really has had a great year. He’s done an outstanding job in the WAC and throughout the regular season and our goals against average is much lower this year than it was last year so I’m thrilled about that.”
Feener recorded his fourth shutout of the season, 10th of his career, in the team’s 1-0 victory versus San Jose State on Senior Night on Nov. 8. The win sealed an undefeated record in conference play (7-0-3) for the Redhawks, the WAC Regular Season Champions. Feener made five saves in the match, remaining on top of NCAA DI standings in total saves (132).
