MILWAUKEE - Marquette University women's soccer standout Maegan Kelly has been named to the TopDrawerSoccer.com Preseason Best XI second team. The midfielder joins players from North Carolina, Stanford and Duke, among other schools.
Kelly had an impressive junior season, earning All-BIG EAST First Team and BIG EAST All-Tournament Team honors. She notched eight goals with 13 assists to help the Golden Eagles to a BIG EAST Championship and the team's third Sweet 16 appearance.
The Kansas City, Mo., native received a special invitation this past spring, along with her MU teammate Emily Jacobson, to play at the U23 Women's National Team Camp in Carson, Calif.
The senior returns the field this fall when the Golden Eagles open their season on the road against in-state rival Wisconsin in exhibition action on August 15. MU will open regular season play at Portland on Friday, Aug. 23.
