KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Tennessee rising junior Hannah Wilkinson was named to the TopDrawerSocccer.com Preseason Best XI Team, as announced on Tuesday.
Wilkinson garnered third team honors. She and Texas A&M midfielder Meghan Streight were the only two SEC players recognized with first, second or third team accolades.
The New Zealand native enjoyed a banner season in 2012, earning third team NSCAA/Continental Tire NCAA Division I All-American accolades after leading UT with eight goals and four match-winners. The dynamic forward was also a first team All-SEC selection as she led the league with eight goals scored in SEC play.
In 2012, Wilkinson helped Tennessee make its 10th appearance in the NCAA Tournament and the team finished the year with a 14-5-3 record.
Tennessee opens its 2013 regular season at home on Aug. 23 against Oklahoma as part of First Tennessee Friday.
