Tommie Women's Soccer senior forward Mallory DeBoom keeps adding to her deep resume.

In the last week alone, she's surpassed 100 career points; led her team to its third conference championship (first solo); and now won her first career MIAC Athlete of the Week honor.

She is just the second St. Thomas recipient of the conference's weekly award in the last six seasons, joining goalie Tarynn Theilig in 2016.

With St. Thomas needing two strong games against title contenders to claim the MIAC championship, DeBoom stepped up and led the way in a four-day span. DeBoom recorded three goals and one assist to lead the Toms' 5-0 road win over Augsburg on Wednesday night, and added the mid-game insurance goal in Saturday's 2-0 defeat of Bethel.

The Toms are 45-0-4 in games on her career when DeBoom scores a point. She now has 43 goals and 22 assists for 108 points, and ranks third on the UST career scoring list. She needs two points to move past Kelly Hudson into No. 2. Jessy Dease leads St. Thomas at 143 points.

A D-III All-America and MIAC Offensive Player of the Year as a sophomore in 2016, DeBoom is a lock to become the Tommies' first four-time All-MIAC honoree in program history when those awards are announced in the coming week.

The No. 24-ranked Tommies (16-2 overall, 10-1 MIAC) posted their 10th and 11th shutouts of the season last week, and stayed unbeaten at home.

Coach Sheila McGill's team hosts an MIAC playoff game Wednesday at 2 p.m. at South Field. A win would snd the Toms into the Saturday 1 p.m. title game, also at home.
