SEC Offensive Player of the Week - Auburn midfielder Bri Folds, a senior from Lakeland, Fla., scored in both contests during the week and became the ninth play in program history to score a goal in four straight contests. She assisted on the game-winning goal against Syracuse and later converted on one of her own to double the Tigers' advantage. Three days later, she stepped up and converted her third PK of the season vs. Troy. Folds led the team in scoring with five points during the week.

SEC Defensive Player of the Week - South Carolina defender Anna Patten, a junior from Harpenden, England, was named the Defensive MVP of Boilermaker Challenge Cup after leading the Gamecocks to wins over Purdue and DePaul. She played all 90 minutes in both wins and scored game-winning goal against Purdue. Patten has helped the Gamecocks extend their shutout streak to four games and up to a total 429 minutes.

SEC Freshman of the Week - Texas A&M goalkeeper Shantel Hutton, a freshman from Duluth, Ga., set the Texas A&M freshman records for most consecutive shutouts (five) and consecutive scoreless minutes in goal (529 and counting). Her current stretch of five shutouts ranks second on Texas A&M's charts behind only Jordan Day's seven consecutive clean sheets in 2012. Hutton made four saves in Friday night's 1-0 victory over Ohio State. She saved the game for the Aggies on Sunday with a full-extension diving stop in the 82nd minute of the Aggies' 0-0 draw against Brown.
