Rhian Wilkinson Named SEC Player of the Week
With consecutive dramatic game-winners in wins over Georgia and Northwestern, freshman Rhian Wilkinson of the University of Tennessee was named the Southeastern Conference Player of the Week on October 30.

“As far as I am concerned, Rhian deserves all of the credit that she receives this year,” said Vols head coach Angela Kelly, a former Canadian national team member. “She is extremely fast and very deceptive and has proven to be one of the top freshmen in the country.”

Wilkinson, who has been a member of Canada’s newly-formed Under-19 national team this year, finished the regular season with six goals and six assists.

The Lady Vols also feature fellow Canadian Under-19 team member Marie-Eve Nault.
