Pia Rijsdijk Earns Pair of National Weekly Awards

Oct. 1, 2013

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - Alabama junior forward Pia Rijsdijk continues to earn accolades for her performance on the pitch last week. On Tuesday, the Numansdorp, Netherlands, native was selected to the TopDrawerSoccer.com National Team of the Week and CollegeSoccer360.com Primetime Performers Weekly Honor Roll.

The recognition comes after Rijsdijk earned the Southeastern Conference Offensive Player of the Week award on Monday.

Rijsdijk helped lead Alabama to a pair of wins over Vanderbilt and Tennessee last weekend, scoring three goals in the two matches.

Rijsdijk recorded her first goals of the year in the win over Vanderbilt on Friday night, finding the back of the net two times to help lead the Tide to a 5-2 victory. On Sunday, Rijsdijk kept the momentum going by scoring in the 31st minute for what would be the eventual game-winning tally in the Tide's 4-2 win over the Lady Vols.

Alabama will continue SEC play with a pair of games next weekend. The Tide will first travel to Athens, Ga., to square off with the Georgia Bulldogs on Friday night at 7 p.m. ET (6 p.m. CT). Alabama will then return home to take on LSU on Sunday at 1 p.m. CT.
