ORANGE BEACH, Ala. - With the annual Southeastern Conference Tournament slated to begin on Wednesday at the Orange Beach Sportsplex in Orange Beach, Ala.., the league office released its annual All-SEC teams for soccer with a pair of Lady Vols included among those players honored. Senior midfielder/forward Mick Imgram became the 12th Lady Vol to be chosen First Team All-SEC, earning the program's 18th all-time selection to the prestigious squad. Rookie midfielder Amy Harrison became the ninth UT player in history to be tabbed to the SEC All-Freshman team.
With Imgram's inclusion on the All-SEC First Team, the occurrence marked the 10th consecutive season that Tennessee has boasted at least one choice on the league's top squad.
The Clifton, Va., native Imgram has posted quite a remarkable 2009 season for the Orange & White. The 5-7 senior currently leads the SEC in goals scored counting all matches with 12, while her eight tallies also guided the way counting league contests only. The 12 goals rate Imgram in a tie for third all-time in Tennessee soccer single-season history, deadlocking her with former UT standouts Kylee Rossi (12 goals in 2007), Kim Patrick (2001 & 2002), Rhian Wilkinson (2000) and Laura Lauter (1998). This year Imgram also joined the prestigious "20-20 Club" at Tennessee consisting of just three other Lady Vol players who have totaled at least 20 goals and 20 assists during their playing careers. Imgram currently rates fifth all-time in total points with 70, is tied for seventh alongside former Lady Vols Keeley Dowling and Kendyl Michner in career goals with 25 and stands seventh in career assists with 20. During her final campaign in the Orange & White, Imgram posted career-best streaks for consecutive matches with a goal (three) and for totaling at least one point (six). She also registered a pair of two-goal performances during wins over ETSU (2-0 on Aug. 22nd) and Mississippi State (3-0 on Oct. 9th). For her match-winning efforts in victories over Memphis and Western Carolina, Imgram was also honored as the SEC Offensive Player of the Week for Sept. 14th.
A native of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, Harrison christened her career at Tennessee by scoring a pair of goals, both match-winners, and tallying a team-high four assists during her rookie campaign. She tallied her first career point from an assist on Imgram's match-winning goal at 87:14 of UT's 2-1 victory over Memphis. Harrison's initial goal also proved to be the winner in a 1-0 victory at Kentucky, and that clutch score earned her a selection as the SEC Freshman of the Week on Oct. 5th. She followed that up in Tennessee's very next contest against Mississippi State by recording her first two-assist effort, and most recently, posted the eventual winning goal at the 10:15 mark during a 2-0 romp over Alabama (Oct. 25th). Harrison has started 18 of UT's 19 matches this season and drawn playing time in each of the 19 contests.
Imgram, Harrison and their Lady Vol teammates open the annual SEC Tournament on Wed., Nov. 4, in Orange Beach, Ala., as the eighth-seed facing top-seeded and No. 10-ranked Florida at 6 p.m. ET.
