Jones, who was named Offensive Player of the Week, tied a Troy single-game record with three assists last weekend on Friday against UALR. On Sunday, Jones netted two goals against Arkansas State. With her performance last weekend, Jones is now the all-time single season record holder for points, assists, game-winning goals and shots.

Jones also holds the Troy career record for game winning goals and shots.

Lewis, named the Defensive Player of the Week, held both UALR and Arkansas State scoreless in their two games last weekend.

Lewis has set Troy single-season records for wins, goals against average and shutouts. She finished the regular season by leading Troy to four consecutive shutout victories.

This is the second time this season Jones has earned Offensive Player of the Week honors, while Lewis has earned the Defensive Player of the Week honor three times.
