Garrett (Carmel, Ind./Carmel) made 29 saves and posted a .630 save percentage to help the Thunder to split of two non-conference games this past week. The junior turned aside 12 of 18 shots on goal in Trine's first victory of the season, a 12-6 win over Defiance. She followed that with a 17-save effort in a tight 11-9 loss to Ursuline. Garrett is being honored as Player of the Week for the first time this season and the third time in her career.
