Oct. 4, 2010

LEXINGTON, Ky. - UK freshman forward Caitlin Landis has been named the Southeastern Conference Offensive Player of the Week as announced by the league office on Monday.

Landis, a native of New Columbia, Pa., was responsible in some way for all of UK's scoring this weekend assisting on the Wildcats' goal in the 1-1 tie at No. 17 Georgia and scoring the game-winning goal in a 1-0 win at Tennessee.

Landis finished with eight shots on the weekend pushing her team leading total to 37, the eighth most shots by a freshman in UK history. Landis played all 110 minutes against Georgia and 88 of 90 minutes against Tennessee.

The award is the first of her collegiate career and she is the 10th Wildcat to receive an SEC weekly honor. It is also the 20th time a UK player has received any sort of SEC player of the week honor.

Kentucky closes out a four-game road stretch this weekend, traveling to Baton Rouge, La. and Fayetteville, Ark.
