MOUNT VERNON – Cornell senior linebacker Jeremy Demlow and senior goalkeeper Jordan Setser have been named Midwest Conference Performers of the Week in their respective sports for the period ending Sept. 8.
Demlow was tabbed MWC Football Defensive Performer of the Week after a 14-tackle effort in Cornell's 45-14 season-opening rout of Lawrence Saturday at Ash Park Stadium. The 6-foot, 220-pound Demlow matched his career high for tackles in a game, which included eight solo stops.
Demlow recorded 3.5 tackles for loss, one sack and also forced a fumble that led to a third-quarter touchdown. He led a defense that caused four turnovers and limited Lawrence to 3.7 yards per play. Demlow's 14 tackles were the most by an MWC player in Week 1.
Setser was honored as the MWC Men's Soccer Defensive Performer of the Week. The four-year starter delivered a complete-game shutout in Cornell's 5-0 nonconference home win over MacMurray.
Setser tallied six saves in leading the Rams (1-2) to their first shutout win since Sept. 18, 2011 (Waldorf). He has allowed just three goals through three matches this season.
Demlow and the Ram football team travels to play 22nd-ranked Coe (1-0) at 1 p.m. Saturday in Cedar Rapids. Cornell's soccer team looks to square its season record Wednesday with a 5 p.m. match at Coe (2-0-1).
