SEC Offensive Player of the Week - Vanderbilt forward Haley Hopkins, a junior from Newport Beach, Calif., netted her 13th career game-winning goal in the 88th minute against No. 15 Georgia. Hopkins, playing through a lower-body injury suffered two weeks ago, played 54 minutes off the bench but made an immediate difference each time she entered the game, finishing with a team-high three shots with two of Vanderbilt's six on target.

SEC Defensive Player of the Week - South Carolina defender Sutton Jones, a junior from Fort Mill, S.C., scored a brace in the win over Florida. It is the first brace by a Gamecock defender since Taylor Leach in 2014 against East Carolina. She doubled her career goal total with her two goals against Florida, helping the Gamecocks defeat the Gators for the fifth-straight time at Stone Stadium dating back to 2012. Both of her goals came off headers served from corner kicks.

SEC Freshman of the Week - Texas A&M forward Lauren Geczik, a freshman from Houston, Texas, recorded the first two goals of her career in just 36 minutes of play at Tennessee. With the match deadlocked at 0-0, she entered the match in the 25th minute and scored in her first 2:14 on the pitch. Geczik added her second goal in the 39th minute to give the Aggies the 2-0 lead at the intermission.
