BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Alabama soccer’s Reyna Reyes was selected as First Team All-SEC by the Southeastern Conference coaches, the league office announced Sunday.
Reyes has been an instrumental part of the Tide’s defense this season. The Garland, Texas, native has helped the program earn six shutouts, including two over top-25 ranked opponents in No. 19 Auburn and No. 24 LSU. She recorded the game-winning goal against No. 24 LSU and Jacksonville State, in addition to scoring against Kentucky. Reyes also notched an assist in the team’s 2-1 win over Missouri. She ranks second on the team in game-winning goals (2) and is tied for third in both total goals (3) and points (7). Her performance this season has earned twice her SEC Player of the Week honors, winning the award following the team’s wins against LSU and Auburn.
Reyes and the Alabama soccer team set a program record for most home wins in a single season, as the Tide posted its 10th victory at the Alabama Soccer Stadium last Thursday against No. 19 Auburn. The Tide has outscored its opponents, 23-8, when playing at home. Reyes assisted UA in closing its season on a seven game-winning streak in front of its home crowd.
Reyes earned her second nod on the all-conference first team after being selected to both the first team and all-freshman team in 2019. She is the first Crimson Tide player to be selected twice for First Team All-SEC honors since Rachel Brown won the award in 1998 and 1999.
Sixth-seeded Alabama will open the SEC Tournament on Nov. 2 at Orange Beach, Ala. The Tide will face third-seeded Ole Miss at 2:30 p.m. CT. The match will be televised live on the SEC Network.
