Birmingham, Ala. — Senior defender Meredith Snow has been named SEC Defensive Player of the Week, the SEC announced Monday morning.
Snow helped lead Ole Miss to wins over Vanderbilt (3-0) and Kentucky (2-1 OT) last week. She scored the third goal in a 3-0 win against Vanderbilt while anchoring a shutout against the Commodores.

Snow also helped the team to a 2-1 overtime win on the road at Kentucky. This season Snow is serving as a team captain and has recorded two goals while helping the Rebels to six shutouts on the year.

This is the second SEC Player of the Week honor for the Rebels this season. Goalkeeper Allie Ronaldi was named SEC Defensive Player of the Week on August 29.

South Carolina’s Kayla Grimsley was named this week’s SEC Offensive Player of the Week while Alabama’s Pia Rijsdijk was named SEC Freshman of the Week.

Ole Miss is still in the race to qualify for the 2011 SEC Soccer Tournament. The Rebels can qualify if they beat Mississippi State on Friday night and Alabama either ties with or loses to Auburn on Friday.
