Two Red Raiders named to 2014 Preseason All-Big 12 Soccer Team (Krista Pirtle's Blog)

Senior Jaelene Hinkle and junior Janine Beckie were selected to the 2014 Preseason All-Big 12 Soccer Team. 

Hinkle, one of the top defenders in program history, was part of a Tech defense that ranked second nationally last season in shutout percentage and third for goals-against average. After finishing last season with six assists, she enters her senior season already ranked among the top-five players in school history for career assists.

Hinkle, along with Texas junior goalkeeper Abby Smith, were the lone unanimous selections.

Beckie received All-Big 12 first team honors for the second-straight season a year ago. She is currently playing for Canada in the FIFA U-20 World Cup. Beckie leads Canada with two goals so far in the World Cup and is one of 11 players through three matches to record two or more goals in the tournament.

Oklahoma State and West Virginia led the way with three student-athletes on the All-Big 12 Team. Overall, six schools were represented on the squad.
