C-USA honors three women’s soccer players

The SMU women’s soccer team honored three players with All-Conference recognition awards this week after closing out a winning season against the UNT Mean Green.

Senior forward and midfielder Kimber Bailey received second-team All-Conference USA honors on Tuesday. Bailey was a preseason All-Conference USA pick at the start of the 2007 season, as well as the 2006 season.

Bailey started every game at SMU, totaling 40 goals in her career and 18 assists. Closing out her season as the 6th leading scorer in SMU history with a total of 98 points, Bailey rounded out her season at SMU with a goal in each of the two remaining home games of the 2007 season.

The senior also led the Mustangs in total goals three out of the four seasons she played at SMU. Bailey was also named to the Academic All-District team this season.

Carly Phillips, a junior defender was also named second-team All-Conference USA because of her strong defensive skills from her center back position. Drawing her season to a close with one goal, Phillips was a key asset in the team’s free kicks and corner kicks.

Also named as a 2007 preseason All-Conference USA pick, Phillips was one of the team’s co-captains alongside senior defender Alyssa Pembroke.

First-year forward Lauren Shepherd was named to the Conference USA All-Freshmen team as well, after finishing her first season at SMU after earning the most playing minutes of any first-year student. Shepherd brought in two goals for the team and was credited with one assist in her debut as a Mustang.
