Lackey Nets SBC Athlete Of The Week

DENTON, Texas (8/23/10) - North Texas defender Julie Lackey, who registered seven points over the weekend for North Texas, was named the first Women's Soccer Player of the Week for the 2010 season, the Sun Belt Conference announced Tuesday.

Lackey, a native of Humble, Texas, netted three goals and an assist during the first weekend of play for the Mean Green. The junior scored twice and added an assist in a dominating 8-0 win over Texas Southern on Friday night before coming up with a clutch game winning goal in the 76th minute against Missouri State on Sunday.

Lackey's multi-goal game on Friday was just the second multi-goal game of junior's career at North Texas. The five points scored were a career-best for the defender.

The Mean Green (2-0) will head to Las Cruces, NM to square off with Prairie View A&M on Friday and Jacksonville St Sunday afternoon in the Hotel Encanto Aggie Classic.
