SEC Offensive Player of the Week - Georgia midfielder Abby Boyan, a sophomore from Spring Lake, N.J., made the game-winning shot in overtime to put Georgia over Mississippi State in Starkville. It is Georgia's first SEC overtime win since 2011 when the Bulldogs defeated Mississippi State 4-3 in double overtime. It was the second goal this season for Boyan, who now has five career goals.

SEC Defensive Player of the Week - Ole Miss goalkeeper Ashley Orkus, a sophomore from Vestavia Hills, Ala., made a career-high 10 saves against Alabama, including three in overtime. The 10 saves are the most by a keeper for Ole Miss in a single match since Marnie Merritt made 10 stops at Texas A&M in 2017.

SEC Freshman of the Week - Florida forward Kouri Peace, a freshman from Chalfont, Pa., scored the game-tying goal versus Auburn in a game the Gators went on to win 2-1. It is the second consecutive match Peace has scored a goal and third in the last eight matches.
