It is the sixth career weekly honor for Moenkedick. She was a four-time defensive player of the week in 2010 and also earned the award once in 2009.
South Dakota's Jenny Teslow was named Offensive Player of the Week after scoring twice in a 3-2 loss to North Dakota.
Moenkedick and the Bison travel to Honolulu, Hawai'i this weekend to play Hawai'i and California.
