Jalisa Kassam, WOMEN'S SOCCER

Junior Jalisa Kassam of the Oglethorpe women's soccer team has been named the SAAC Female Athlete of the Week for her efforts in the team's 3-0 victory over LaGrange on Sunday.

Kassam totaled five points on the day, scoring two goals and tallying an assist. She scored both of the goals on long-range shots from outside the box, and picked up her assist on a long ball over the top that freshman Tress Southard ran onto for the game's second goal.

Kassam has helped lead the Stormy Petrels to a 3-1 start, the program's best since 2010. They will next be in action on Wednesday night, when they take on Huntingdon at 8 p.m. Eastern from Montgomery, Alabama.
