Freshman Allison Campbell and sophomore Laura Lauter of the UT soccer team
were named to the 1998 Southeastern Conference Second Team in voting
conducted by the league's 12 head coaches.
The trio of Florida, Kentucky and Vanderbilt led all teams with four
selections each, followed by Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and Tennessee
with two apiece. A total of nine of the league's 12 teams were represented.
Campbell and Lauter became the second pair of Lady Vols to receive All-SEC
honors, as defender Kassie Kees and midfielder Kendyl Michner were selected
A freshman forward from Livonia, Mich., Campbell has taken it upon herself
to rewrite the school's record book. Starting in all 19 matches, the rookie
has established new standards for shots (84), points (46), goals (17) and
assists (12). She has recorded four different games with multiple goals,
including five scores in an 8-1 conquest of UNC-Asheville.
In eight SEC contests, Campbell notched 11 points on four goals and three
assists, including two goals against Mississippi State and one versus both
Arkansas and Louisiana State. Nationally, Campbell is 12th in points per
game (2.42) and is the second-highest freshman scorer, six points behind
Mary Frances Monroe from Connecticut.
During her second season at UT, Lauter has improved the level of her play
for head coach Charlie MacCabe's squad. After a stellar freshman campaign
in which she finished second on the team in scoring with 20 points on eight
goals and four assists, the forward has practically doubled her offensive
output. The Farragut, Tenn. native has amassed 34 points on 12 goals and 10
assists, highlighted by a hat trick in UT's 3-2 overtime win at South
In addition, she was tabbed as the league's Player of the Week on Sept. 29
after contributing a total of three goals in shutouts of Arkansas and LSU.
Lauter finished second in the conference scoring race with 21 points on
eight goals and five assists, a remarkable increase from the three points
she contributed last season.
Tennessee enters the upcoming SEC Tournament with a 12-7 overall mark, the
most wins in the program's three-year history. The Lady Vols, who were 5-3
in conference play, met Western Division champion and No. 25 Alabama
(12-5-1, 6-2 SEC) in first-round action yesterday in Tuscaloosa, Ala.
(Results were unavailable at press time).
UT also ranked sixth in the most recent Central Region rankings, equaling
the highest position in the squad's existence.
