SEC Offensive Player of the Week - South Carolina's Elexa Bahr, a sophomore forward from Buford, Ga., netted the game-winner against No. 17 Florida in the 80th minute after racing into the box and smashing it home from 15 yards out. The goal secured the SEC championship for the Gamecocks. She is now tied with Savannah McCaskill for the team lead in goals (7) and game-winners (4) and her seven goals in 2017 are six more than she had all of last year.

SEC Defensive Player of the Week - Missouri's Kelsey Dossey, a junior goalkeeper from Plainfield, Ind., posted a shutout in goal to help Mizzou claim a berth to the SEC Tournament with a 2-0 win over LSU in the regular season finale. Dossey made a season-high 10 saves in net as the Tigers earned their fourth shutout of the season in a must-win game. The shutout was the seventh in Dossey's career and first non-combined shutout this season.

SEC Freshman of the Week - Kentucky's Abigail Zoeller, a freshman midfielder/goalkeeper from Independence, Ky., stopped all 23 Georgia shots she faced on Thursday and made seven saves on the road in a 3-0 win. Zoeller, who has never played GK at the collegiate level, and is a midfielder, had to step up as UK's goalkeeper with Evangelive Soucie - the only true GK on UK's roster - was out with a concussion. She appeared in the first 14 games of the season as a midfielder or forward.
