The Tennessee Lady Vols, playing at home in the opening round of the NCAA tournament, were nine seconds away from a victory over Miami of Ohio when the RedHawks tied the game on a goal by sophomore Kelsey Dinges. Then less that five minutes into overtime, Miami struck again on a Kayla Zakizewski game-winner, and Tennessee’s season was over. UT, under new head coach Brian Pensky, finished the year with a 14-5-3 record. Alexi Owens and Caroline Brown scored the Tennessee goals……Maryville College’s Ashley Howarth (Knoxville, TN), a junior forward, has been selected 2013 USA South Conference Player of the Year award.

Lipscomb (6-11-1 overall, 3-4-1 Atlantic Sun Conference) scored the winning goal just 21 seconds into the overtime period.
