Forward Sage Glover of LSU has been named SEC Freshman of the Week, the league announced on Monday afternoon.
The native of Atlanta, Georgia earned the honor based on her performance in the team’s last two matchups against Pepperdine and San Diego with a one goal in each match.
“Sage has had a seamless transition to the college game,” LSU soccer coach Sian Hudson said in a university release. “She is an exciting young talent, with a big personality and I’m thrilled to see her get this honor so early in the season as she builds confidence and chemistry with her team.”
Outside of her three goals, Glover has been impressive with her ability to create space for herself and others with her movement off the ball.
Against Pepperdine, the forward found the back of the net in the 43rd minute on a perfectly timed ball from Alesia Garcia. Her goal was the first in the match to put the Tigers up 1-0 against the Waves just before halftime.
Against San Diego on Sunday, Glover scored the third goal of the match in the 79th minute for a 3-1 lead.
