WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- Four Boilers scored goals as Purdue women's soccer opened its spring season with a win and a draw at a four-team indoor tournament at the Mollenkopf Athletic Center Saturday (March 2).

The Boilermakers defeated IUPUI, 4-0, in the final game of the day. Chinyelu Asher scored twice and Mina Mansoori and Jessica Bernard also contributed a goal in the win. Purdue also played Butler to a 1-1 draw in the opening game of the event. Kate Fowee accounted for the second-half equalizer.

Milwaukee also participated in the four-team event. All four games played inside Mollenkopf featured full 11-v-11 action for 70 minutes (two 35-minute halves). Milwaukee also posted a win and a draw against IUPUI and Butler, respectively, to match the Boilers.

Purdue women's soccer was also recently recognized as the winner of the President's Cup for having the highest semester GPA (3.44) among all Boilermaker teams during the 2012 fall semester. The team was recognized on Keady Court at halftime of men's basketball's win against Northwestern on Sunday, Feb. 24.

Five individuals earned 4.0 GPAs and another had a 3.93 GPA during the 2012 fall semester.

Purdue continues its spring schedule with a Sunday, March 24, road game at Kentucky. The Boilermakers are also scheduled to play St. Louis, Indiana State, Michigan and Dayton this spring.
