OXFORD, Miss. – Freshman defender Jessica Hiskey has been named the Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Week, the league office announced on Monday with the release of its weekly award winners.

Hiskey helped the Rebels post a shutout victory over Kentucky on Sunday as Ole Miss defeated the visiting Wildcats 2-0. The shutout win marked the sixth shutout victory of the season for the Rebels and the second in Southeastern Conference play. Ole Miss also posted a shutout of Alabama earlier this season with a 1-0 victory in Tuscaloosa.

The freshman from Franklin, Tenn., started both matches and played all 180 minutes on the weekend to help anchor a backline that shut out the Wildcats and posted the fifth straight victory over Kentucky. The win also tied the overall series between the two teams at 9-9-1.

In addition to her defense, Hiskey also provided an offensive spark for the Rebels as she played up and down the Ole Miss flank, often attacking the Wildcat defense and setting up opportunities for the Rebel offense.

Ole Miss will return to action this weekend with matches at Vanderbilt and South Carolina. The Rebels take on the Commodores at 7 p.m. CT on Friday night and the Gamecocks at noon CT on Sunday.
