Tramicka James named SAC Player of the Week

Scored three goals in two matches

ROCK HILL, S.C. --- Tusculum College sophomore forward Tramicka James has been recognized by the South Atlantic Conference as its women's soccer Player of the Week, league officials announced Tuesday afternoon.

James, from Wilson, N.C. (Fyke HS), tallied three goals in two SAC road matches last week, helping the Pioneers to a 4-2 win at Lincoln Memorial and a 1-1 tie at Catawba. James scored the Pioneers' first two goals to erase 1-0 and 2-1 deficits in the victory over LMU, then scored the tying goal in the 73rd minute against Catawba.

James, who is SAC Player of the Week for the second time in her career, has scored at least one goal in each of the Pioneers' last six matches and tallied 12 goals over that span. Her 15 goals this season are tied for eighth on the program's single-season list, while her 26 career goals are tied for seventh all-time in program history.

The Pioneers will carry an 8-6-1 overall record and a 3-3-1 SAC mark into Wednesday night's conference match with Carson-Newman, which begins at 7 p.m. on Pioneer Field.
