BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- Tennessee senior Tori Bailey has been named to the 2013 SEC Soccer Community Service Team, as announced by the conference on Tuesday.
The SEC sponsors Community Service Teams for all 21 league sponsored sports. The Community Service Team looks to highlight an athlete from each school who gives back to their community in superior service efforts.
Bailey has been a true leader for Tennessee, both on and off the field this season. UT's 2013 team captain has led the team in community service, participating in a variety of events. This past June, Bailey volunteered at Manorhouse Assisted Living, helping improve the lives of the elderly with her work and warm personality. Bailey, who is majoring in recreation/sport management with a concentration in therapeutic recreation, enjoys interacting with members of community. Whether it's providing instruction and advice at a soccer clinic, talking at a local high school or helping the less fortunate, Bailey has strived to make a positive impact in the community.
This season, Bailey has been a team leader, setting a positive example with her relentless work ethic and competitive attitude in every practice and every match. She has started all 19 matches for Tennessee this year and matched her career highs with two goals and two assists. Bailey scored the first goal of the season in UT's 3-1 season-opening victory over Oklahoma. She also had the match-winner in UT's 2-0 win at Mercer on Sept. 8.
