KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – The University of Tennessee women’s soccer team landed two players on the 2007 ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District IV Third Team as announced by the College Sports Information Directors of America on Thursday. Junior goalkeeper Jaimel Johnson and senior forward Emily Redberg both earned a spot on the team, which honored 35 student-athletes in District IV for their excellence on the field and in the classroom.
Redberg is currently second on the squad in goals with seven. The Brooklyn Park, Minn., native’s 67 career points tie her for fifth all-time in the Tennessee record books. In her four years, the forward has notched eight game-winners and helped lead UT to three straight NCAA Tournament berths.
In the classroom, Redberg finished her undergraduate career with a 3.26 cumulative grade point average and received her Bachelor of Science in Marketing in May 2007. Redberg is currently in her first semester of graduate school at Tennessee and is pursuing a Master’s Degree in Sport Management.
Johnson has posted eight solo shutouts this season for the Orange and White, compiling a record of 13-2-2 overall. With her blanking of then-No. 17 Southern California on Sept.16, Johnson passed former Lady Vol Sarah Shivley for sole possession of third all-time with 13 career shutouts. The Dayton, Ohio native also moved into third place on the career victories chart with her 16th, a 2-0 win over Ole Miss on Oct. 19. Johnson now has 19 career wins at Tennessee.
Off the field, Johnson is majoring in Sport Management at UT. The keeper boasts a 3.23 cumulative grade point average in her first two years in the Orange and White.
The selection to the third team is Redberg’s second consecutive recognition, while the honor is Johnson’s first. Seven current and former Tennessee players have earned Academic All-District IV honors, with 11 total selections all-time.
