KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Just weeks after completing her Razorback career, senior Jessi Hartzler added one more accolade to her resume as she represents Arkansas on the 2017 United Soccer Coaches’ All-Southeast Region Team.
Hartzler was named as one of six defenders on the all-region third team and it marks her second-straight all-region honor as she made the second team last year. She’s one of nine players in Arkansas’ history to ever be named to an all-region team and one of four players (Honey Marsh) to became a two-time all-region player.
This season, Hartzler started all 24 games for the Razorbacks, scoring four times with two game winners. The Kearney, Missouri native helped lead an Arkansas defense that posted 10 shutouts, tying for the most in a single-season in school history.
Over her four seasons, Hartzler made 86 appearances, ranking in a tie for second all-time in program history and started 57 of her final 58 matches. She also finished with six game-winning goals, good for a tie for ninth all-time. Eight of her 12 career goals came during her junior year, including four game-winning goals.

The Razorback soccer team finished the 2017 season with an 11-11-2 record and reached the NCAA Tournament for the fourth time in the last five years.
The second half of the season that Arkansas displayed was nothing short of extraordinary. The Razorbacks reached the SEC Tournament final for the second-consecutive year, winning three matches in five days, including one over top-seed and current College Cup participant South Carolina. With the three wins in the tournament, the Razorbacks secured their ninth 10-win season in school history, third under head coach Colby Hale.
