Falcone wins freshman of the week


Freshman forward Kyra Falcone earned the first accolade of her collegiate soccer career Tuesday, winning the Big 12 Freshman of the Week award. 

The San Antonio native scored two goals in Friday’s 7-0 victory over Sam Houston State, tying her for second on the team. Both goals came in rapid succession, with each scored within a minute of each other. In addition to her goal-scoring prowess, Falcone has impressed with her passing ability. She ranked No. 3 among the Longhorns in total points with four. 

Texas now sits at 4–2 on the year after six consecutive home matches to start the year. But the Longhorns will be tested in their next match as they head to Columbus, Ohio, to face No. 19 Ohio State. The Buckeyes currently sit at 5–1 on the year.
