Montclair, NJ (9/5/11) – Junior Kelly Palmer (Long Valley, NJ / West Morris Central) was tabbed as the New Jersey Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Week as the league announced its first awards for the 2011 season.

Palmer helped Montclair State off to a 2-0 start for the first time since 2003 as MSU posted wins at Stevens and home versus College of Mount St. Vincent.

In a 2-1, double-overtime win on the road at Stevens, Palmer was an integral part of a unit that allowed the Ducks 14 shots in the 103 minutes of play. She then scored her first career goal and helped hold Mount St. Vincent without a shot as Montclair recorded an 8-0 victory.
