University of Florida All-American junior Kathryn Williamson (McKinney, Texas/McKinney Boyd H.S.) is part of the first Soccer America National Team of the Week, the outlet announced Tuesday evening. It is her second honor in as many days, as Monday she was named the Southeastern Conference Defensive Player of the Week.
Last weekend in south Florida, Williamson helped the Gators open the season with a pair of shutout wins. She played the entirety of both matches during the weekend at center back. During the season opener at Miami, she had a pair of noticeable plays. A Hurricane player got behind the backline at the top of the Florida third and was moving toward the goal. Williamson tracked her down and executed a slide tackle to end the threat. Later, Williamson cleared the ball off the line following a Hurricane corner kick. more
