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

last season.

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.
