Four Soccer Players Earn Pac-10 All-Conference Honors
Nov. 14, 2001
TEMPE, Ariz. - Despite being overlooked for an NCAA Tournament bid this year, the future continues to look bright for the Arizona State women's soccer team as three of the four players earning honors on the 2001 Pacific-10 All-Conference teams are underclassmen. The four selections are the second most in school history - third most in the Pac-10 this year - as the Sun Devils had six honorees last year.
Senior midfielder Stacey Tullock and sophomore defender Amy LePeilbet earned first team selections, while sophomore forward Patrice Feulner and freshman forward Stephanie Peel garnered honorable mention acclaim. Tullock and LePeilbet's honors were the most first team selections in the program's history.
Tullock, the most heralded player in school history claimed her fourth consecutive first team appearance. A three-time All-American, Tullock ended her career as ASU's all-time leader in every offensive category including games played (77), shots (315), points (125), goals (50), assists (25) and game-winning goals (16). Tullock hails from Phoenix, Arizona.
LePeilbet, only a sophomore from Crystal Lake, Illinois, was the team's main defender. This season, LePeilbt helped ASU post six shutouts and hold team's to the fewest goals allowed in school history (23) as she neutralized many of the opponent's top offensive players. She also tallied one assist and recorded five shots.
Feulner, also a sophomore from St. Charles, Illinois, earned her second Pac-10 honorable mention award. This year Feulner led the team in goals (11), game-winning goals (4) and points (25), good for third and fifth respectively in the Pac-10 Conference. Feulner is already second in ASU history in goals scored (23) and third in points (57) and game-winning goals (5).
Peel, a freshman from Plano, Texas, finished the year second on the team in assists (5) third in goals (4) and points (13). One of the top freshman in the Pac-10, Peel also earned the team's only Pac-10 Player of the Week honor as she excelled in both of ASU's wins over 12th-ranked Kentucky and Furman.
