Freshman forward and current South Atlantic Conference Player of the Week Tramicka James enters the week ranked 82nd in the nation in points per match (1.56) and is tied with sophomore midfielder Michelle Meade for 60th in assists per contest (0.44).
This season’s Pioneer attack is led by a talented trio of freshmen, including James, who leads the team in goals (9), assists (7) and points (25) through 16 matches. Fellow freshmen Kayla Durden and Kourtney Kavic have also chipped in offensively this season with six and five goals, respectively, while sophomore defender Claire Duncan has found the back of the net a career-high five times thus far in contribution to a well-balanced Pioneer attack. Meade and junior defender Courtney Turner, a 2007 All-American, have also contributed significantly in the attacking third this season, recording seven and six assists, respectively for the Pioneers.
