With the 2002 season in the rearview mirror, the University of Alabama women's soccer team is still being applauded for its efforts as it was announced by the Southeastern Conference that the Crimson Tide place a conference most 21 players on the SEC Women's Soccer Academic Honor Roll.

The 21 athletes are the most ever for the Crimson Tide soccer program by a large margin.  During the 1997 and 1998 seasons, Alabama placed 10 athletes on the conference honor roll.

"This shows the commitment and the effort put forth in the classroom by the student athletes, the support staff at C.A.S.S. (Center for Athletic Student Services) and the outstanding professors at the University," said Alabama head soccer coach Don Staley.  "I'm very proud of these young ladies because they are truly committed to their academic work."

The 2002 SEC Women's Soccer Academic Honor Roll is based on grades from the 2001-2002 academic calendar.

The Crimson Tide soccer team will wrap up its season this weekend when the team travels to Orange Beach, Alabama for the Orange Beach Invitational and a 5 p.m. match with the Ole Miss Rebels on Saturday, April 26.  The Tide will then travel to Mobile, Alabama for a 12 p.m. date with the University of South Alabama Jaguars to end the spring season.
