Siena women's soccer sophomore forward Caitlin Cahalan has been honored by CollegeSoccer360.com as one of its Primetime Performers of the Week. During Siena's run to its first-ever MAAC Tournament title, Cahalan thrived, tallying three assists.

On Friday against Marist, Cahalan assisted on a game-tying goal from Lindsay Tegas in the 59th minutes. Less than nine minutes later, the sophomore found Tabitha Tice off a turnover, and Tice promptly put the Saints up 2-1 in a game they would win 4-2. Two days later, in the MAAC Championship game against Canisius, Cahalan found Tice again on a throw-in in overtime. Tice then scored the golden goal, and Siena was on its way to its first-ever NCAA Tournament.

Cahalan is one of 17 players nationally to be selected as a Primetime Performer for Week #12. In order to be considered for the CS360 Weekly Awards, a player must meet the following criteria:

*Must have played in a game involving a top-50 team from the CS360 Composite National Rankings (or a preseason conference favorite), or performed at a high level in a game that is key to the team's postseason qualification.

*Involved in clutch performances, such as game-winning goals, noteworthy comebacks, late scores, team leadership, etc.

*Overcame adversity or extreme circumstances (for the team and/or individual).

*Bonus consideration is given for key performances away from team's home field.

Cahalan and the Saints return to action Friday night at College Park, Maryland, against Georgetown in a first-round NCAA Tournament matchup.
