Best Soccer Team

UT Longhorns

It may be different next year, when the USL Austin Bold make their debut, and yet again the year after that, if Austin FC is here by then. But for now, it’s Angela Kelly’s Texas Longhorns who rule the roost. And the story’s not over for this year’s squad; they could turn out to be the best team UT’s ever produced. Six different players have earned Big 12 player of the week honors (three of them twice each). Two of their three losses came in a midseason stretch on the road when they had two starters off playing for the Canadian national team. They had the first perfect home record in program history, at 10-0. And with good results in the Big 12 conference tournament this weekend, they should get at least one more home game in the NCAA tourney. Hook ’em.
