CLEMSON, S.C. (CAC) – Four days after scoring her first career goal in her collegiate debut, Julie Mackin has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference’s Offensive Player of the Week, as announced by the conference office on Tuesday morning. The freshman midfielder from Castle Rock, Colo. finished the weekend with one goal and two assists in the two Clemson victories.
Mackin’s goal at Auburn, which she scored just nine minutes into the match, proved to be the game winner for Clemson in its 2-0 road win on Friday, Aug. 19.
