AUBURN, Ala. -
Freshman midfielder Katy Frierson was named to Soccer America's Team of the Week, the organization announced on Tuesday. This is the second award for Frierson this week as she was named the Southeastern Conference's Freshman of the Week on Monday.
Frierson, from Birmingham, scored a pair of goals in Auburn's 2-0 win over South Carolina on Sunday that drew Auburn into a tie with South Carolina for fifth in the SEC standings with three matches remaining.
A strong candidate for SEC Freshman of the Year honors, Frierson has scored all eight of her goals in conference play and currently leads Auburn in goals (8) and points (21) and is tied for second on the team with five assists.
Auburn heads to Athens, Ga., for a Thursday night match against Georgia before returning home to face Tennessee on Sunday. Thursday's match will air live nationally on the Fox Soccer Channel.
