Ladyjacks Land Three On NSCAA All-Central Teams
Dec. 4, 2012
NACOGDOCHES, Texas - For the first time in school history, three Stephen F. Austin Ladyjacks were named to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America NCAA Division I Women All-Central Region teams. Kylie Louw (First Team), Lacey Lee (Third Team) and Zuri Prince (Third Team) make up three of the eight Southland Conference selections of the 2012 class.
For Louw it marks the third consecutive year the South Africa native has been named to the NSCAA All-Central Teams and the second straight year she was a first-team selection.
The senior midfielder native is coming off a season in which she was named the Southland Conference Player of the Year for a record third consecutive season and played a major role in guiding the Ladyjacks to an SLC regular season and tournament title. Louw set the all-time SFA points record with an assist for her 92nd career point against Sam Houston on Oct. 19, 2012. Louw was third in the nation in both total assists (13) and assists per game (0.65).
Lee, a junior goalkeeper from Bedford, Texas, registered the second-best goals against average in the country (0.42) and the third-best save percentage (.887). Lee was a SLC first-team selection for a second consecutive season and allowed just seven goals in nearly 1500 minutes of action.
Prince, a forward from Beaumont, Texas, was a SLC first-team selection following a sophomore campaign in which she was tied for third on the team in goals score (7), tied for second in assists (5) and tied for second in points (19). Prince was also named the Southland Conference Tournament MVP.
SFA finished the season with a school-record 17 victories and advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2007 before falling to Texas A&M, 1-0 in the first round.
