KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- We recently caught up with a bunch of our Tennessee soccer alumni at Regal Stadium.
Rhian Wilkinson (2000-03) stopped by to say hello, as well as show us the 2012 Olympic bronze medal that she earned playing for her native Canada. She and fellow UT alum Marie-Eve Nault became the first Lady Vol soccer players to win an Olympic medal. Rhian currently plays professionally overseas and has shined in the international spotlight for the Canadian National team for several years. She has played in three FIFA World Cups and two Olympics.
Rhian stands as UT's all-time leader in assists (32) and a top 3 player in points and goals. She was a Freshman All-American in 2000 and a three-time All-Region selection, a three-time All-SEC selection and an Academic All-SEC selection.
