Lewis Earns NSCAA Third-Team All-Central Region Honors
Junior Joins Four SEC Players in Earning Regional Honor

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Junior midfielder Jennifer Lewis (Birmingham, Ala./Briarwood Christian) picked up her second postseason honor following the 2002 season, as she earned Third-Team All-Central Region honors by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America. Lewis was one of five Southeastern Conference players to be named to either the first, second or third teams.

Lewis was named to the All-SEC First Team following a solid season in the midfield for the Commodores. She was one of four Vanderbilt players to start and play in all 16 games. Lewis recorded two goals and one assist during the season and was third on the team with 41 shots. Over her first three seasons, she has tallied eight goals and six assists while being one of the key components to the Vanderbilt midfield.

One of Lewis’ highlights this season came against then No. 21-ranked Tennessee, who eventually won the SEC regular season and tournament championships, back on October 11. Less than six minutes into the contest, Lewis scored from around 30 yards out to give the Commodores the lead - one they would not relinquish. The win also gave Vanderbilt a victory over a ranked opponent for the eighth-consecutive season.

Other SEC players to be recognized were Tennessee’s Keeley Dowling (first team), Rhian Wilkinson (second team), Mississippi’s Kristen Menard (second team) and Kelly Renie (second team).
