has been named the Appalachian Athletic Conference women's soccer Offensive Player of the Week for the period ending Oct. 30, the league announced on Monday.
Jorgensen (Oksbol, Denmark), a forward, earns the award after netting the game-winning goal in overtime in Union's 3-2 win at Columbia on Saturday.
