SEC Offensive Player of the Week - Vanderbilt forward Haley Hopkins, a redshirt freshman from Newport Beach, Calif., poured in another multi-goal performance, her fourth of the year, in the upset over No. 9 Tennessee. She scored the first goal of the game and the last goal of the game to provide insurance in the win. She now has three multi-goal games in SEC play and has six goals in SEC play. Also had two shots in Vanderbilt's win over No. 25 Mississippi State.

SEC Defensive Player of the Week - South Carolina goalkeeper Mikayla Krzeczowski, a junior from Douglasville, Ga., recorded clean sheets against Georgia and Florida last week, breaking the South Carolina career record for shutouts with 32. She has registered four straight shutouts against SEC opponents. With 32 shutouts, Krzeczowski is just one away from tying the SEC career record (held by Megan Rivera of Auburn). Krzeczowski's 136 career saves moved into fourth in South Carolina history.

SEC Freshman of the Week - Missouri forward Julissa Cisneros, a freshman from Moreno Valley, Calif., scored the first three goals of her career in games against Ole Miss and LSU. She was the only Tiger to score in either of those games. Her second goal against Ole Miss came in the 86th minute and proved to be the game-winner. Her goal in the LSU game also came late, as she scored in the 87th minute.
