Offensive Player of the Week - Ole Miss midfielder Haleigh Stackpole, a senior from Bowling Green, Ky., gave Ole Miss the lead less than seven minutes into the match against Vanderbilt. It was her fourth goal of the season, second in SEC play. Stackpole has scored or assisted on 15 of Ole Miss' last 21 goals. As a box-to-box midfielder, played a key role in Ole Miss shutting out back-to-back SEC opponents since 2018.

Defensive Player of the Week - Georgia goalkeeper Emory Wegener, a senior from Johns Creek, Ga., helped Georgia earn a critical divisional point against South Carolina with an outstanding clean sheet performance. In her second 110-minute outing of the season, Wegener posted six saves, allowing for the Bulldogs to finish with a scoreless tie against the Gamecocks. Wegener would post five saves in the second half to send the match to overtime; she would also help keep the score at zeroes despite South Carolina earning 12 corner kicks during the match. With the result, Wegener earned her 18th career shutout, the fourth-most in Georgia program history.

Freshman of the Week - Tennessee defender Claire Rain, a freshman from Tampa, Fla., played all 90 minutes at left back in Tennessee's 2-1 win over Mississippi State, converting on her only shot of the game to score her second goal of the season and put Tennessee up 1-0 just five minutes into the game.
