LSU striker Alesia Garcia was named to the Top Drawer Soccer Team of the Week on Wednesday morning.

Garcia notched five points last week as LSU registered wins over Arizona and No. 21 Arizona State. In the first game of the week, she registered an assist on Athena Kuehn’s goal versus Arizona to help LSU to a 2-0 win. On Sunday she collected a brace with goals in the ninth and 66th minutes against No. 21 Arizona State. Her goal in the ninth minute served as the gamewinner in LSU’s 5-2 win.

Garcia is now tied for the team lead with Tinaya Alexander with 12 points apiece. Garcia, a transfer from New Mexico, has scored 24 collegiate goals; she’s scored five with LSU and had 19 during her three years at New Mexico.

No. 7 LSU is back in action on Thursday night as they take on UL-Lafayette in Lafayette. First kick is set for 7 p.m. CT.
