The Vols vs. SE Louisiana
#18 Isabella Cook for the Tennessee Volunteers playing against SE Louisiana on Thursday, September 5, 2019.

Tennessee freshman Isabella Cook was named the SEC freshman of the week on Monday.

Cook, a midfielder from Elmhurst, Illinois, scored her third goal of the season on Sunday against Kentucky, where the Lady Vols found their first conference win of the season.

Her goal came from a cross set up by teammate Colleen McIlvenna. Her score put her team up 1-0 in the 20th minute. Cook then set up a goal for MA Vignola in the 29th minute to put her team up 2-0.

Cook was able to maintain a season-high 80 minutes in their game against the Wildcats. Her three points were the most scored by a Tennessee freshman since Sonia Ouchene Salón secured the same number on September 8th against Cincinnati.

She is also the first Volunteer to win freshman of the week since 2014, when Carlyn Baldwin was given the award following wins over Missouri and Ole Miss.

Cook and her team will look to keep their momentum rolling into their next matchup. The Lady Vols will host the Georgia Bulldogs on Thursday, October 10 at Regal Stadium. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
