October 11, 2016
BRENTWOOD, Tenn. – The University of Tennessee at Martin soccer program received their second Adidas Ohio Valley Conference Player of the Week honors of 2016 as sophomore Amy McGivern was named the league’s Co-Offensive Player of the Week alongside Murray State’s Harriet Withers.
The Ballynahinch, Northern Ireland native has been a force on the pitch for the Skyhawks in recent weeks. McGivern notched the overtime winner on Sunday against Jacksonville State as she buried a pass from MaKenzie Crawford to claim the squad’s first conference win of the season. She also tallied an assist in the game. McGivern leads UT Martin in OVC play in goals (3), shots (18) and points (7).
The award marks McGivern’s first Player of the Week honor of her career, as she joins teammate Danae Kaldaridou as the two Skyhawks to receive OVC honors this season.
McGivern and UT Martin return to the pitch this Friday, Oct. 14 as they play host to Eastern Kentucky at Skyhawk Field. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
