2008 Auburn Tigers Soccer

If you are looking for our Current Auburn Tigers Soccer page, check out Auburn Tigers Soccer.

Auburn Tigers Soccer is one of the top soccer programs in the Southeastern Conference (SEC). Over the past few years, the Lady Tigers have developed a strong national soccer reputation.

Auburn University has won five SEC West Division Titles in the last seven years and also won the regular season SEC Soccer Title in 2002. Even with all of this success, the Tigers have still been unable to win the SEC Tournament, although they have been runner-up several times.

Auburn went 10-8-2 last year and reached the NCAA Tournament for the second consecutive season (lost in 1st round). In 2008, Auburn looks to be heading towards its sixth NCAA Tournament appearance in the last seven seasons and returns nine starters from that squad, including preseason All-SEC selection junior forward Caitlin King and all-America candidate senior goalkeeper Allison Whitworth.

In 2007, King led Auburn with 23 points as she scored five goals (2 game winners) on 52 shots on goal and tied the Auburn single-season record for assists with 13. Caitlin was voted to the preseason All-SEC Soccer team.

Whitworth also had another outstanding season, recording 102 saves for the second straight season. Other key returnees for Auburn include senior defender Jenn Johnson and senior forward Kara Kasten. Johnson has played in all 61 matches of her Auburn career while Kasten enters the season with 25 career points. Auburn has 17 letter winners from last season's NCAA tournament team.

Auburn Soccer began 2008 with a pair of shutouts. Auburn used a relentless offensive attack which resulted in nine goals and a school-record 51 shots as it shut out Grambling State, 9-0, in the season-opener. For her efforts in both games, senior goalkeeper Allison Whitworth was tabbed the SEC Defensive Player of the Week. Whitworth, from Birmingham, made five saves over the weekend to bring her career total up to 229, which ranks third all-time at Auburn.

Auburn Tigers Head Coach Karen Hoppa has is going to start 10th season with the Tigers.

Auburn, as the 2006 SEC West Division Champions, had a strong 11-6-3 record in 2006. Unfortunately, they were knocked out in the first round of the 2006 NCAA Soccer Tournament.

The Tigers had a very young team in 2006 after playing a staggering thirteen freshman compared to only five of their seniors. Senior Ronda Brooks, who was named Defensive MVP for the second year in a row, made some important defensive plays with a total of five points. Caitlin King was another key player who was responsible for some big overtime plays against William & Mary and Kentucky last season.

The successful freshmen of 2006 are now in their second year at Auburn and will likely make even bigger plays this year. Two-time SEC Freshman of the Week, King, who was also voted Rookie of the Year in 2006, will no doubt bring even more skill to the Lady Tigers this year. After leading the team in points as a freshman, the forward will likely be even better than before due to her experience on the field last year.

Sophomore Jenni Prescott, the walk-on known for her determination and heart, is also expected to play big this season after scoring three goals in 2006. Auburn's starting goalkeeper, Allison Whitworth was named to the 2007 preseason All-SEC team. She replaces Anna Fiser who, last year, was only the third Tiger in history to have 100 saves in one season.

Prediction: Auburn wins the SEC West, gets an NCAA bid and wins one game in the NCAA tournament. Auburn Tigers Soccer will be even stronger in 2008.
