As the conference tournament season has arrived in college soccer, so has the award season as each conference begins giving out their annual awards. UTSA received just their second ever Conference USA All-Freshman Team awardee in Jordyn Lacy who was awarded on Tuesday.
Lacy was placed in the All-Freshman team after being 14th in the league on points with 15 points coming from five goals and five assists. Lacy’s contributions to UTSA have been vital as two of those goals have been game winners.
The 2016 has been UTSA’s best season since 2011, and their best since joining Conference-USA, with Lacy’s five goals proving vital. In 2016 UTSA recorded their most goals, assists, and wins in five years, holding their best ever Conference-USA record.
Lacy came to UTSA as the number one high school player in her native New Mexico after excelling in Albuquerque. Lacy continued that form in UTSA as she was one of the stars, excelling in attack for the Roadrunners.
In conference play Lacy managed two goals with three assists, her assists count making her the equal highest on the UTSA squad. Lacy was awarded the offensive player of the week in September 26th as her collegiate career was getting off to a good start.
Lacy scored twice in UTSA’s win against Middle Tennessee when she won player of the week honors, to boost her case. She went further, recording two assists against Rice and was able to make another assist against UAB to cap the week.
Lacy is the first Roadrunner to win the award since 2013 when goalkeeper Emma Makela was on the team.
