Florida’s Savannah Jordan is the first freshman in SEC history to be named the league’s Offensive Player of the Year, the conference announced Monday.
Joining Jordan on the league's first team are junior midfielder Havana Solaun and defender Christen Westphal. Jordan is the second consecutive Gator named the SEC Offensive Player of the Year, as Erika Tymrak earned the honor as a senior in 2012. A Gator has now picked up a SEC Player of the Year honor 13 times in the program's history. Jordan also is the third Gator to be named SEC Freshman of the Year.
Jordan is second in the nation with 20 goals scored.
UF midfielder Pamela Begič joins Jordan on the SEC All-Freshman team.
The Gators now head to the SEC Tournament in Orange Beach, Ala. Florida will open play Wednesday at 6 p.m. and will face the winner of Monday's play-in match of Arkansas and Missouri. The Gators are the defending SEC Tournament champions and have claimed the tournament title 10 times in the program's 18 previous appearances.
