MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - Middle Tennessee's Whitney Jorgenson garnered College Sports Madness Sun Belt Player of the Week honors on Monday.

Jorgenson, a senior from Overland Park, Kan., scored the Raiders' two goals in a 2-nil shutout of Louisiana on Sunday.

The senior forward is second on the team with 22 points. She has eight goals and tied for a team-high six assists in 14 matches this fall as Middle Tennessee ranks as the nation's top-scoring offense.

Jorgenson has also made an impact in the MT record book. She is tied for fifth with 19 career assists, seventh with 63 points and 10th with 22 goals.

"Whitney is truly deserving of this award," said head coach Aston Rhoden. "She has done very well for us this season. Her accomplishments often go unnoticed. I am excited that Whitney earned recognition for her success this past weekend."

Jorgenson's honor marks the fourth for a Blue Raider this season. Paige Goeglein and Emily Hartshorn were named Sun Belt Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week for Sept. 4. Last week, Kate Loye was honored as SBC Offensive Player of the Week, while Goeglein was named to the CS360 Primetime Performers Weekly Honor Roll.
