Gray led a defensive unit that allowed only two goals in three games as SFA jumped to the top of the SLC standings with a perfect 3-0-0 record. Gray helped direct SFA to a 5-0 shutout over defending SLC regular-season champion Southeastern Louisiana. Gray also made her presence felt on the offensive end netting a goal in the win over the Lady Lions.
Michalezki is continuing to put together a solid junior season. She played 247 of a possible 270 minutes of action in the team's three games, surrendering only one goal and recording two shutout performances. She also carded 11 saves while recording an 0.36 goals against average.
