TU Downs UALR; Falls to North Texas:
Tulsa posted its second win of the season with a 5-2 victory over Arkansas-Little Rock in Little Rock, Arkansas, last Wednesday. TU freshman Danielle Fauteux (Kamloops, B.C., Canada) turned the first collegiate hat trick of her career with three goals, while classmate Jamie German (Owasso, Okla.) and senior Julie Twellman (Columbia, Mo.) each scored one goal apiece. German and junior Keely Flynn (Tulsa, Okla.) each picked up an assist in the win.
Last Sunday, Tulsa played well against North Texas, but couldn't find the back of the net and dropped a 3-0 decision to the Mean Green in Denton, Texas.
Fauteux Continuing Freshman Trend:
Twellman Continues To Climb TU Charts:
Twellman's goal was the 23rd of her career and she moved into an eighth-place tie with Paige Mayer (1994-98) for career goals. Twellman's two points gave her 59 for her career and she now ranks ninth on the all-time scoring list. Twellman also has 13 career assists, which ties her for ninth-place with former TU standout Beth Taruscio.
German on the Assist:
TU's 2002 Recruiting Class Ranked No. 37 Nationally; No. 4 in Central Region:
The Golden Hurricane's eight newcomers finished as the highest-ranked group among Western Athletic Conference schools and ranked behind only perennial powers Nebraska, Texas and Texas A&M, respectively, among Central Region teams. Both the national and regional rankings are the highest the TU women's soccer program has ever received in its 16-year history.
It also marks the third straight season that Tulsa has received high marks. Last season, the 2001 class ranked among the nation's top-100 and the region's top-25 classes. TU's 2000 freshmen class ranked eighth in the region and among the top-100 groups in the country.
