The Razorback soccer, swimming and diving and men’s and women’s track teams led the department with four athletes selected from each. Soccer players Megan Fawley, Kat Moffett, Erin Moskos and Rachel Smith earned recognition. Under the direction of first-year head coach Erin Aubrey, the soccer team is following in a long line of successful academic endeavors at Arkansas.
