KNOXVILLE, Tenn. --We recently caught up with Tennessee soccer head coach Brian Penksy and sophomore defender Brittney Wade to see what the Lady Vols are up to this spring.
The spring is an important time for soccer programs across the nation, serving as a period in which teams start to build their squads for the fall of 2013.
The work put in last spring served as the groundwork for Tennessee's impressive 2012 season. The Lady Vols posted a 14-5-3 record and made their 10th appearance in the NCAA Tournament. Tennessee boasted one of the nation's elite defenses. The team's 0.69 goals-against average set a new program record and the Lady Vols recorded 11 shutouts. UT also produced the longest shutout streak in school history with 533:22 of scoreless defense from Aug. 19 through Sept. 9. The Lady Vols finished at No. 18 in the final NCAA Women's Soccer RPI and the Lady Vols ranked 25th in the final Soccer America poll of 2012.
