UTC's Mueller Named SoCon Soccer Player Of The Week

Tuesday, August 22, 2017
 University of Tennessee at Chattanooga sophomore Jordan Mueller (Hendersonville, Tenn.) was named the Southern Conference women's soccer Player of the Week the league office announced Tuesday.
 
Mueller led the Mocs to a season opening win over Austin Peay with two goals and an assist on the game winner. She leads Chattanooga in scoring with five points. She has six shots this season with four on goal for a .667 shots on goal percentage.
 
Mueller was named to the SoCon All-Freshman team last season after finishing the year third on the Mocs' list for scoring.
She had four goals for eight points as a center midfielder. Last spring she was moved to forward.
 
Following the Mocs' win over the Governors, head coach Gavin McKinney said of Mueller: "We converted Jo into a center forward last spring," McKinney said. "We thought she had a knack for getting in the right area in the box. She scored four goals last year as a center mid and she's getting better every day."
 
Mueller had a team-high four shots in UTC's double-overtime scoreless draw against 2016 OVC regular season co-champions Eastern Kentucky on Sunday.
 
The Mocs will travel to Radford, Va., for a Friday night matchup against the Highlanders. The game tips at 7:00 p.m. Live stats and video streaming are available online at GoMocs.com on the women's soccer schedule page.
