Go Gophers!
The Eden Prairie, Minn. native has made a huge impact on the 2011 Golden Gopher squad as she leads the team in points (23), goals (10) and game-winning goals (4). Her 23 points this season rank her sixth all-time for a Minnesota freshman while her 10 goals rank her fourth all-time for a Gopher newcomer.

On Monday, Uhl was named Big Ten Freshman of the Week for her four point (one goal, two assists) weekend in the Gophers' weekend split with Indiana and Purdue. It's the second time this year that Uhl has received the honor with the first coming on August 22, due to her hat trick performance against South Dakota State in the opening week of the season.

The player rankings released by TopDrawerSoccer.com are based on a formula which involved playing time, level of competition, productivity and feedback from coaches around the league. Texas A&M's Kelly Monogue received the nod as the No. 1 freshman while Stanford's Chioma Ubogagu and Virginia's Morgan Brian round out the Top 3.
