Lewis Earns First-Team All-SEC Womens
Junior Becomes Vanderbilts 36th All-SEC Honoree
Ala. - Junior Jennifer Lewis (Birmingham, Ala.) became Vanderbilts
36th All-SEC recipient, as she earned first team conference
recognition on Wednesday. The 12 Southeastern Conference coaches
select the first and second team members.
The midfielder was one of the mainstays in Vanderbilt womens
soccer head coach Ronnie Hills line-up. During the year,
Lewis started and played in all 16 games. Over her first three
seasons, she has started in 47 of 51 games. While the juniors
statistics might not support the point, Lewis was one of Vanderbilts
most dangerous threats on the offensive end, while also being
an intimidating presence on the defensive end.
Lewis finished the season with two goals and one assist
for five points, and now has eight goals and six assists for
22 points over her first three seasons with Vanderbilt. She
also ranked third on the team with 41 shots this season.
One of Lewis highlights this season was against then
No. 21-ranked Tennessee on October 11 in Knoxville, Tenn.
Less than six minutes into the contest, she crushed a shot
from around 30 yards out which sailed into the upper corner
of the net. Lewis goal was all Vanderbilt would need,
as it held on for a 1-0 victory over the Lady Volunteers.
her game-winning goal gave the Commodores a win over a nationally-ranked
opponent for the eighth-consecutive year.
