Oct. 12, 2005


University of Kansas senior forward Jessica Smith earned another individual honor as she was named to the Soccer Buzz Elite Team of the Week on Wednesday. On Tuesday, Smith was awarded the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week.

The Wichita, Kan., native tallied four goals last weekend, including a hat trick, in leading KU to wins over Oklahoma State and No. 21 Oklahoma. Her hat trick was the sixth in Kansas soccer history.

Smith scored just 4:29 into Friday’s match against Oklahoma State and added a second goal before the half. Smith secured her hat trick with a diving header in the 75th minute. Smith gave KU a 2-0 first half lead with a goal against No. 21 Oklahoma. During the two matches Smith landed seven of her nine shots on goal.

Kansas will be back in action this Friday with a match against Texas Tech in Lubbock, Texas. Kick off is set for 7 p.m.
