Williams & Ludlow Win Big 12 Soccer Weekly Awards
September 04, 2012

Ashley Williams (Kansas) and Kat Ludlow (Baylor) have earned Big 12 Soccer Weekly accolades for games played from Aug. 31-Sept. 2. Williams, who won the first Newcomer of the Week award this season, now has three career honors. Ludlow earns her first career recognition.

Williams becomes the third student-athlete to earn both the Offensive Player and Newcomer of the Week honor in the same week. The feat was accomplished last in 2009.

Offensive Player of the Week; Newcomer of the Week
Ashley Williams, Kansas, F, Fr., Albuquerque, N.M.
Williams helped the Jayhawks to their second-consecutive undefeated weekend. The Albuquerque, N.M.-native notched her first two-goal match and added an assist in a 3-0 win over the Creighton Blue Jays. Williams kicked in her third goal of the weekend in the fourth minute against Arizona State, where the Jayhawks would go on to play to a 2-2 draw. For the weekend, she added seven points to her 11 already amassed this year, which ranks first in the Big 12. Her five goals in 2012 also leads the Big 12.

Defensive Player of the Week
Kat Ludlow, Baylor, D, Jr., Colleyville, Texas
Ludlow helped Baylor post two shutouts over the weekend by playing 97 minutes for a defense that allowed only three shots in two games. The junior, who started both contests, also added a goal and an assist. In the 3-0 Nebraska win, Ludlow assisted on the first goal of the game in the 18th-minute as she headed along a ball between two Cornhusker defenders to Dana Larsen, which allowed Larsen to score the game winner in a near one-on-one situation with the NU goalkeeper.  In Sunday's 5-0 win, the junior headed in a free ball in the air that she went up and won in the 32nd minute.
