The Big Ten Conference announced Monday afternoon that University of Minnesota women's soccer player Taylor Uhl has been tabbed Big Ten Freshman of the Week for her four-point weekend (one goal, two assists).
The Eden Prairie, Minn. native tallied a pair of assists this past Friday night in the Golden Gophers' 3-1 victory over Indiana. She followed up Friday's performance by scoring the Maroon and Gold's lone goal in a 2-1 loss to Purdue on Sunday.
Uhl's four points acquired over the weekend pushed her to sixth all-time in Minnesota history for points by a freshman (23). Sunday's late goal also moved her to fourth all-time in the Gopher record books for goals by a freshman (10). The freshman forward leads the Maroon and Gold in both categories this season and ranks in the Top 10 in the Big Ten for each.
This week's honor is the third Freshman of the Week award for a Minnesota player with Uhl garnering the honor on August 22 and fellow freshman Becca Roberts claiming the accolade on October 10.
The Gophers face Nebraska this coming Friday in a match that holds Big Ten Tournament implications not only for the new conference rivals, but also plays a big part in four other conference team's chances at receiving a spot in the eight-team tournament. With a win on Friday, Minnesota solidifies the No. 5 seed for the tournament, which is slated to be held November 2-5 in Evanston, Ill.
