This is the second in our eight-part Summer Year-In-Review Series. Each Monday, we will recap one of the top stories from the 2013-14 year. In Part Two, we revisit a recurring theme during late September and into October.

Every week in the Centennial Conference, one or more players are honored as Players of the Week in their respective sports. When Nicole Hill, a freshman on the women's soccer team, garnered that honor on Sept. 30, it was not really anything out of the ordinary.

However, she turned that honor into something that few before her can claim – she took home the accolade three weeks in a row.

Sept. 30, 2013: Hill led the Green Terror to a 2-0 week, scoring a goal in each game. In addition to scoring against Goucher on Wednesday, Sept. 25, she also broke a 1-all deadlock with a 78th-minute goal at Ursinus on Saturday, Sept. 28.

Oct. 7, 2013: Hill led the Green Terror to a 3-2 win over Juniata on Saturday, Oct. 5, scoring the first and last goals of the game. She scored 4:47 into the game to stake McDaniel to an early 1-0 lead before breaking a 2-all deadlock with 1:18 to play in regulation.

Oct. 14, 2013: Hill led the Green Terror to a 2-0 week in the conference with a pair of 2-1 victories. In addition to recording an assist against both Franklin & Marshall and Swarthmore, she also tallied the game-winning goal with 2:41 remaining in the first overtime to defeat the Garnet.
