Lindsay Patterson earns All-SEC honors

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Senior forward Lindsay Patterson has been named to the 2008 All-Southeastern Conference Second Team as announced by the league office Tuesday morning. It is the second career all-conference honor for Patterson who led the Razorbacks this season with the six goals and 15 points. With her six goals, she finished among a group of players tied for 14th in the SEC. In conference play, Patterson tallied two goals and two assists for six points. She posted a goal in Arkansas’ conference-opening 2-0 win at Ole Miss, helping the Razorbacks beat the Rebels for the first time since 1996. Her second goal of the SEC season came Oct. 10 against Alabama. Patterson notched an assist in Arkansas’ wins over Kentucky and Vanderbilt.

During non-conference play, she earned SEC Offensive Player of the Week recognition after a nine-point weekend in Arkansas’ wins over Western Michigan and Nicholls St. Her six-goal total ties a career high and the 15 points during the season set a career mark. Patterson missed the first five games of the 2008 campaign nursing an injury.

In four years in a Razorback jersey, Patterson totaled 17 career goals which place her in a tie for ninth on the program’s all-time goals scored list. She is tied with former SEC Player of the Year Honey Marsh (1991-94). Patterson is also fifth on Arkansas’ game-winning goals list with six during her career.

Last season, Patterson was a second-team all-conference performer with 14 points. She is the sixth player in Arkansas soccer history to claim two All-SEC honors. This marks the 19th all-conference selection, distributed among 13 players, in program history.
