She sits in third for overall saves with 55, just behind Jenna Hascher from Northwestern and Claire Wheatley from Illinois who are tied at 56. She has made at least five saves in each of the last four games for the Golden Gophers. 

This is the first set of Big Ten conference honors for Hobbs. The last Minnesota Defensive Player of the week was Cat Parkhill (Oct. 15, 2012) and the last Minnesota Freshman of the Week was Taylor Uhl (Oct. 31, 2011). 

She shares Co-Freshman of the Week honors with Maddy Williams, a freshman forward from Purdue, who scored both game-winning goals this weekend against Illinois and Northwestern.
