Lewis Continues to Pile Up Honors From 2002
Birmingham Native Earns Third Award From 2002 Season
Tenn. - Junior Jennifer Lewis (Birmingham, Ala./Briarwood
Christian) notched her third honor from the 2002 womens
soccer season, as she was named to the SoccerBuzz All-Central
Region Second Team. Lewis had already been named first team
All-Southeastern Conference and third team All-Central Region
by the National Collegiate Coaches Association of America.
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.
Lewis and Ole Miss freshman forward Kelly Renie were the only
two players from the SEC to be placed on the SoccerBuzz Central
All-Central Region Second Team.
Lewis and the rest of her teammates will play the first of
their four spring games on March 15 when they take on Alabama-Birmingham
in Birmingham. All four of Vanderbilts spring games
will be on the road.
