Conference Honors for Wagner

Alex Wagner is the SEC Defensive Player of the Week

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Alex Wagner was named Monday as the SEC Defensive Player of the Week after helping the Commodores to a pair of 2-0 wins over Kentucky and Missouri, respectively.

Wagner played a key role in limiting Kentucky and Missouri to a combined three shots on goal. She also scored an amazing volley Thursday against the Wildcats to give Vanderbilt a 2-0 lead.

Wagner cleared a ball off the goal line in both contests. Her clearance Sunday at Missouri preserved Vanderbilt’s lead and led to Alex Kerr’s last-second goal.

Wagner and the Commodores travel to Alabama to face Auburn at 6:30 p.m. Friday on SEC Network+.
