LANCASTER, PA - Franklin & Marshall College goalkeeper Robyn Jones (Jr., Titusville, NJ/Pennington) has been named the September 19 Centennial Conference Women's Soccer Player of the Week.

Last week, she made seven saves as the Diplomats shutout Susquehanna University (1-0 W) and Swarthmore College (1-0 W OT) on the road. In the Centennial Conference opener versus Swarthmore, she made five saves to keep the Diplomats in the game until Amanda Zambrano (Sr., Pittsburgh, PA/Fox Chapel) netted the game-winning goal in overtime.

On the year, Jones has a .941 save percentage and a 0.25 goals against average as she is 4-0 with three shutouts and one goal allowed in 361:16 minutes of play.
