Gainesville, Fla.

After picking up the SEC Tournament MVP honor, Erika Tymrak was named to two national teams of the week.

Florida’s All-American senior Erika Tymrak (Bradenton, Fla.), who led all scorers with three goals over the course of the Southeastern Conference Soccer Tournament, is part of both the Top Drawer Soccer National Team of the Week and Primetime Performers list. The Gators claimed their 10th SEC Tournament title Sunday with a 3-0 win over Auburn in the final match at Orange Beach, Ala.


Tymrak also tallied three assists in Florida’s three SEC Tournament matches and the 10 points she generated upped her collegiate totals to 31 goals, 38 assists and 100 points. She ranks No. 4 on Florida career charts in assists, sixth in points and eighth in goals.


All of Tymrak’s SEC Tournament goals came from distance. Sunday, she hit a 23-yard shot to give UF a 2-0 halftime lead. In Friday’s 3-0 semifinal win versus Missouri, Tymrak scored from 25 yards and she provided the Gators with the game-winning goal off a 24-yard free kick in the 89th minute in the 2-1 win over Mississippi Wednesday.


The tournament’s MVP award went to Tymrak for the second time, as she also earned the honor for her play at the 2010 event. Tymrak was named the SEC Offensive Player of the Year when the league awards were announced last Monday prior to the start of tournament play.


Florida now awaits the announcement of the NCAA Championship 64-team field at 4:30 p.m. ET today at As the SEC Tournament champion, the Gators receives the league’s automatic berth into the field. It will be the 16th NCAA appearance in the program’s 18-year history.
