Crowder Named College Sports Madness SEC Player Of The Week

ATHENS, Ga. --- Georgia forward Marion Crowder has been named the College Sports Madness Southeastern Conference Player of the Week for her performance over the weekend, the Web site announced Tuesday morning.

Crowder – who returned to the field Aug. 24 following off-season ACL surgery – scored two of Georgia’s three goals vs. Vanderbilt on Sunday in a 3-1 come-from-behind victory, helping the Bulldogs to their first comeback win since Oct. 7, 2011. Crowder’s first goal leveled things at 1-1 after the squad failed to score first in a game for the first time all season, and she added an insurance goal for the Bulldogs later in the second half. The Madison, Miss., native has posted multiple goals in back-to-back games, the first Georgia player to accomplish that feat since 2011.

Crowder’s five goals and one assist on the season is good for 11 points, second-most on the team, while her pair of game-winning goals rank tied for most.

Georgia hits the road this weekend to take on Florida and South Carolina.
