The Meadow Vista, California native and former Placer United player, scored her third game-winning goal and added an assist in a three-point effort in 3-0 win at Chaminade University on October 26. She also scored both goals and finished with four points in a 2-2 double-overtime tie at Hawaii Pacific University on October 28. In PacWest play, Gollnick is fourth in points and tied for third in assists.

The former Placer United and Newcastle native scored two goals and added an assist in a 5-2 win at Chaminade University on October 26, finishing the game with five points. He was credited with the game-winner, his team-leading fourth of the season, and helped rally the Penguins from an early 2-0 deficit by scoring goals in the 33rd and 60th minutes.
Mitnick also led the Penguins to a comeback tie at Hawaii Pacific University on October 28 by scoring the game-tying goal in the 61st minute to forge a 2-2 double-overtime draw. Like the Chaminade contest, the Penguins trailed 2-0 but rallied to pick up a point in the standings.
