Lewis Earns First-Team All-SEC Women’s Soccer Honors
Junior Becomes Vanderbilt’s 36th All-SEC Honoree

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - Junior Jennifer Lewis (Birmingham, Ala.) became Vanderbilt’s 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 women’s soccer head coach Ronnie Hill’s 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 junior’s statistics might not support the point, Lewis was one of Vanderbilt’s 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.
