Superior, WI (NNCNOW.com) --- UW-Superior junior Drew Strandberg and sophomore Sally Linzmeier have each been named Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WIAC) athletes of the week in their repsective sports, it was announced on Tuesday.

Strandberg helped the Yellowjackets men's hockey team to a tie and a win over the weekend, stopping a total of 45 shots while getting back-to-back starts in goal.

On the season, the junior goaltender is third in the Northern Collegiate Hockey Association (NCHA) with a 2.35 goals-against average and tied for second with six wins.

Linzmeier, meanwhile, helped lead the UW-Superior women's basketball team to a pair of victories this past week, including a Saturday night victory over then #3-ranked UW-Stevens Point.

Linzmeier scored a season-high 24 points and had eight steals in a Wednesday night win at Northwestern, and then she followed that up with 22 points and nine rebounds at home Saturday against the Pointers.
