Memphis faces Houston on Friday in Louisville, Ky., to begin American Athletic Conference Championships
Christy Caswell was a four-year letterwinner for the Lady Tiger Soccer team and still holds the career assist record with 32 helpers from 1995-1998. Also third in total career points with 68, Caswell remains the program's leader in matches played with 80 appearances over her career.
A three-time, second-team All-Conference USA honoree, Caswell earned an all-conference nod two times as a midfielder and once as a defender after switching positions her senior season. As a freshman in 1995, Caswell also earned Conference USA All-Freshman Team honors after scoring three goals and adding seven assists. In 1996, she had a Tiger single season record 12 assists, a record tied by Shoko Mikami in 2005, and added six goals, finishing with a career-best 24 points.
The Sherwood Park, Alberta, native matched that single-season point total in 1997, this time on the strength of a career-high eight goals with eight assists. She was named the Conference USA Player of the Week on Sept. 22, 1997. Her 1996 and 1997 assist totals are still single season top seven performances, and helped fuel a 1996 Memphis offense that still ranks second in the team record book with 147 points, and a 1997 team that ranks fourth with 117 points. She was a three-time Conference USA Academic Honor Roll honoree and was a recipient of the C-USA Commissioner's Academic Medal in 1998.
