Tramicka James honored as SAC Player of the Week

Earns award for second time in 2011 after three-goal week

ROCK HILL, S.C. --- For the second time this season, Tusculum College junior forward Tramicka James has been named the South Atlantic Conference Player of the Week in women's soccer, earning the honors for the week ending Oct. 23.

James scored the game-winning goal with 18 seconds left in the second half, her second of the game, to lift Tusculum to a 2-1 victory over Catawba on Saturday. Earlier in the week, James accounted for the Pioneers' only goal in a 2-1 loss to Lincoln Memorial on Thursday.

James leads the SAC with 14 goals and 31 points in 16 matches, and ranks among the NCAA Division II leaders in each category. Her 42 career goals are fourth all-time in program history, and her 99 career points leave James one point shy of becoming the third player in program history to reach the 100-point milestone.

The Pioneers (9-6-1 overall, 4-3-0 South Atlantic Conference) head to the road for their final two regular-season matches, starting Wednesday at 6 p.m. at Carson-Newman.
