March 25, 2013
OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss soccer team continues its spring exhibition season with a midweek contest against Memphis on Wednesday night at 7:30 p.m. at the Ole Miss Soccer Stadium.
Fans are invited to come out to the stadium and watch the teams. Admission is free to the public.
Ole Miss is coming off a 2012 season that saw the Rebels post a 13-9 record and advance to the quarterfinals of the Southeastern Conference tournament before losing to top-seeded Florida 2-1 on a goal in the final 90 seconds of the match.
The Rebels also posted the best start to a season in school history, racing out to an 8-0 start to the year.
The young Ole Miss squad, that saw 10 freshmen in action and one sophomore, posted eight shutout victories on the year, including wins over Texas Tech, Alabama, Vanderbilt, Kentucky and LSU where the Rebels posted a clean sheet.
Returning to help lead the Rebels into the fall are a pair of rising seniors who received accolades from various publications and organizations throughout the fall. Forward Rafaelle Souza was named an All-SEC selection by the league’s coaches and an All-Region selection by the NSCAA. She was also tabbed as the SEC Co-Scholar Athlete of the Year.
Forward Mandy McCalla was also named an All-SEC selection, the SEC Player of the Year and a third team All-America selection by CollegeSportsMadness.com for her performance in her junior campaign.
McCalla and Souza tied for the SEC lead in goals scored (13) and assists (7) to pace the Rebels and the conference offensively last season.
