IRVING, Texas -- In recognition of her community service efforts, senior midfielder Allyson Kucera (Pearland, Texas) was named to the 2007 Fall Sports Good Works Team.
Kucera, one of three captains for OU this season, has started every game in 2007, ranks third in goals scored and still takes time out of her busy schedule to participate in various community service efforts.
Kucera, a three-time Academic All-Big 12 honoree, volunteers at different middle schools in the area once a week and also leads a bible study one night a week for high school girls and serves as a volunteer coach for a local girls' soccer team.
Each member institution selected a student-athlete for recognition based upon significant community service, good academic standing and participation in a Big 12-sponsored sport.
For the second year, the Big 12 will announce a 12-person Good Works Team for the fall (cross country, football, soccer, volleyball), winter (basketball, gymnastics, swimming & diving, wrestling) and spring (baseball, golf, softball, tennis, track & field,).
