Freshman Maddie Cornell of the Oglethorpe women's soccer team has been named the SAAC Female Athlete of the Week for her efforts in the team's 2-1 victory at Brenau last week.
Cornell tallied the game-winning goal in a 2-1 comeback win over Brenau in Gainesville. After the Stormy Petrels fell behind the Golden Tigers early, the visitors equalized in the 59th minute. Cornell's heroics followed in the 69th minute, as she took a feed from teammate Jalisa Kassam and finished it to turn the game around and eventually give Oglethorpe a 2-1 win.
Cornell and the rest of the Petrels will be in action in SAA play this weekend, when they travel to Conway, Arkansas, to take on Hendrix Friday at 6 p.m. Eastern, then continue to Memphis, Tennessee, to battle Rhodes Sunday at 1 p.m. Eastern.
