Women’s Soccer

With the season complete, several members of the team have received postseason honors.

Five members of the squad were named as first-team All-Midwest Region performers by the United Soccer Coaches Association. Messiah Bright earned this award for the fourth time. Brandi Peterson, the 2021 Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year, earned the award for the second straight year. Gracie Brian, Lauren Kellett, and Jenna Winebrenner earned the award for the first time.

Messiah Bright has also been named one of the 15 semifinalists for the prestigious MAC Hermann Trophy Award. She is the only representative from the Big 12 conference. In 2021, Bright became TCU’s first-ever 40-point scorer, tallying a school record of 17 goals and six assists on the year. She has career school records with 39 goals and 92 points. The MAC Hermann Trophy is the most coveted individual honor in NCAA Division 1 soccer and has been awarded annually since 1967.

Additionally, the coaching staff was voted the Midwest Region Staff of the Year for the second-straight year. In addition to winning both the Big 12 regular season and conference tournament, the team made it to the Sweet Sixteen for the second consecutive season. The team set season records for wins (17), goals (60), assists (72), points (192), and shutouts (13). TCU was one of three schools to rank in the top 10 nationally in goals against average and total points.

In Saturday’s match, the Frogs lost in four sets, 3-1 (21-25, 18-25, 25-16, 19-25). Dani Dennison, senior, finished her collegiate career with 1,611 digs, the most in program history. She had 21 in Saturday’s match. This was her 82nd career double-digit dig match, a program high, and a ninth in a row.
