C-USA Honors for Lady Tigers Soccer

Posted By on Tue, Nov 2, 2010 at 10:29 AM

Conference USA announced its year-end honors for women's soccer Tuesday, and a pair of Tigers took home big prizes. Senior Vendula Strnadova was named Midfielder of the Year and became the first U of M player to be named first-team all-conference four times. (She's only the second such honoree in C-USA history.) Strnadova has scored four goals and assisted on six others.

Junior Lizzy Simonin was named Defensive Player of the Year and joined Strnadova as a first-team all-conference selection. Simonin connected on two penalty kicks this season and also scored on a corner kick. The Tigers have allowed less than a goal per game (.71).

Alena Strndaova and Rasheeda Ansari were named to the C-USA All-Freshman Team.

Aiming for a fourth straight C-USA tournament championship, Memphis (13-3-3) will face the winner of Houston and Marshall Friday in Orlando.
