MOST COMMENTED

[SEC: Women] Texas A&M was predicted to win to the 2013 SEC women’s title in voting by the league’s 14 head coaches. The Aggies earned eight first-place votes, narrowly topping Florida’s six votes.

Four Aggies return for the 2013 season after earning All-SEC honors last year, including three first team all-conference selections – goalkeeper Jordan Day, forward Annie Kunz and defender/midfielder Meghan Streight.
 
Texas A&M was picked first in the Western Division with 91 total points (13 first-place votes), ahead of LSU’s 67 points (one first-place vote).

Florida was selected tops in the Eastern Division by garnering 89 total points (11 first-place votes). Kentucky and Tennessee (three first place votes) tied for second in the East with 71 points each. Kentucky returns nine of 11 starters from the 2012 team that posted a 14-7-1 over record and captured the program’s first-ever NCAA Tournament win. Tennessee heads into its second season under head coach Brian Pensky with 17 returning players from a 2012 team that went 14-5-3 and took third in the SEC with a 9-3-1 league mark.
