Three Bears Honored as UAA Athletes of the Week

St. Louis, Mo., Sept. 5, 2017 — Washington University in St. Louis had three student-athletes honored as the University Athletic Association (UAA) Athletes of the Week, as announced by the Association.

Sophomore Taylor Cohen of the No. 1-ranked women's soccer team, sophomore Samantha Haubenstock of the women's golf team and junior Julianne Malek of the No. 8-ranked volleyball team each earned the accolade.
