Offensive Player of the Week
Kameron Simmonds Tennessee
F • So. Midlothian, Va.

Simmonds scored goals in both of Tennessee's first two wins of the season, burying a penalty kick in the 55th minute against California at home and driving into the box at Lipscomb to net UT's third and final goal of the match. She took three shots in each contest, all of which were on frame, giving her a perfect shot-on-goal percentage. She currently leads the team in total shots and shots on goal.

Defensive Player of the Week
Maddy Anderson Mississippi State
GK • Sr. Seabrook, Texas

Anderson registered eight saves in leading the Bulldogs to a 2-1 win at Grand Canyon and a 0-0 draw at Arizona State. Playing all 90 minutes in both contests, she had five saves against GCU and then three more against ASU. She is the school leader with 15 career shutouts.

Freshman of the Week
Lena Bailey Florida
F • Fr. Tampa, Fla.

Bailey's first collegiate goal proved to be the game winner in Florida's 1-0 victory versus Maryland. Six minutes after entering the match versus Maryland, Bailey took a throw-in at the top corner of the box. She received the ball, spun to distance her defender and then took a couple of steps before sending a right-footed shot to the far corner. Bailey also had a shot on goal in Florida's opener versus East Carolina.
